A number of Crowle Air Cadets have completed the South and West Yorkshire Wing Junior Non-Commissioned Officer (NCO) courses.  The course aims to teach the cadets how to manage and work as part of a team, how to control a group of cadets and how to get things done.

Cadet Corporal Andrew Wallace and Cadets Joshua Addlesse and Daniel Jewison all attended the 2 day course.  The course teaches communication skills and problem solving, as well as team management skills, all of which are useful in civilian life as well as within the Air Cadets.  The courses also allow cadets from many different Squadrons to meet and interact, with many cadets forming lasting friendships that last after the course.

Many cadets return from the courses with a new found confidence and ability to lead.  This not only helps the cadets who have attended the course, but also those back at the Squadron.  It encourages others to attend the course and develop their skills.

Courses such as this are just a few of the many opportunities Crowle Squadron offers to its members, both cadets and staff. Air Cadets is a youth organisation open to anyone aged 13-17. It is also open to those over 20 who wish to join as a staff and assist in the running of such events If you are interested in finding out more about Air Cadets in Crowle visit us as www.crowleaircadets.co.uk or come down to the Cadet Hut, Axholme Academy site on a Monday or Wednesday evening between 7pm – 9pm.
