Congratulations to 17 CCF cadets in Form 7 who have achieved a BTEC Diploma Level 2 in Teamwork and Personal Development in the Community. Due to current restrictions certificates are being posted directly to their home addresses instead of the usual presentation by the Headmaster. In order to gain the qualification the cadets had to excel at teamwork and communication. Evidence of this was gathered during training on Monday afternoons and Service Weekends. They also completed a CVQO (Cadet Vocational Qualification Organisation) workbook and chose from options such as health and fitness, navigation, volunteering and personal development. Pilot Officer Ball said, “We are very proud of the cadets. They worked hard and showed commitment to the course. Also a huge thank you to Mrs Michelle McGuire from CVQO for her fantastic support throughout the programme.” All Form 6 cadets have the opportunity to complete the diploma and the qualification will enhance their career prospects by giving them the skills, knowledge and understanding which are valuable to employers and will help set them apart from other applicants for university places and employment. 18 of our current Form 6 students have recently registered for the diploma and we look forward to their success.
