The Sea Cadet Corps (SCC)
The Sea Cadet Corps (SCC) dates back to 1854 and aims to foster 10-18 year-olds’ interest in all things nautical and to celebrate Britain’s seafaring heritage.
The SCC has grown into a popular youth organisation that has 14,000 members throughout the UK.
Approximately 700 Cadets and 420 adult volunteers are based in East Midland’s 29 Sea Cadet and Royal Marine Cadet detachments.
The SCC is governed by the Marine Society and Sea Cadets, who work in partnership with the Royal Navy to enable Sea Cadets to have the opportunity to participate in a range of exciting water-based activities. These include sailing, power boating, canoeing, rowing, windsurfing and diving, with frequent competitions and national regattas arranged throughout the year.
The SCC Training Programme is complemented by the Duke of Edinburgh Awards Scheme, which allows Cadets to undertake a wide variety of community and exped type activities.
There is also the chance to enroll on publically recognized courses such as the BTEC in Marine Engineering in addition to the Royal Yachting Association’s various courses, which give Sea Cadets a valuable head start in life.
