JOINING AS A CADET

OPEN EVENINGS FOR PROSPECTIVE NEW CADETS FRIDAY 11th or 18th AUGUST 2017

NEXT ADMISSIONS DATE MONDAY 4th SEPTEMBER 2017

You can join as a cadet from the September when you start in the school academic Year 8, you no longer need to wait until your 13th birthday, and up to your 17th Birthday. The start age has been brought into line with the school year to enable a number of cadets to join at the same time which makes it easier from a squadron training program and allows friends wishing to all join to do so together.

First thing to do is to make contact with the Squadron. This can be done by either ringing the Squadron during normal parade times (Mon & Fri 7.15-9.30pm) on 01752 473781 (if there is no reply please leave your name and number so we can get back to you), by ringing the Squadron Commander on 075 180 25526 at any time or by emailing oc.339@aircadets.org

Once you have made initial contact we will arrange for you to visit the Squadron. This is ideally, but not essential, with a parent or guardian so that they can be shown around and have opportunity to ask any questions they may have. During your visit you will have explained what the Air Cadet Organisation has to offer and what is expected from their members. After any questions have been answered and you have been shown around you will have the opportunity to stay for the remainder of the evening. You will be allocated a mentor to show you what to do at each part of the evening - do not worry you will not be expected to be expert straight away, you will be shown what you need to do, At the end of the evening if your parent has not taken the joining forms you will be issued with the forms to take home and get your parents to sign. Once we have received your joining forms you will officially be a Royal Air Force Junior Air Cadet. As soon as you have completed some training and reached your 13th Birthday you will be enrolled and issued with your uniform and service record book.
