Derby Cadets complete Cadet Leadership Course

Two Cadets from 126 (City of Derby) Squadron Air Training Corps (ATC) have completed a Cadet Leadership course.

Cadet Corporal Cade Foster and Cadet Corporal Sam Holland attended the sought after course at Nesscliffe Training Centre and spent the week with members of the Air cadet organisation as well as the Combined Cadet Force (CCF) to further their leadership skills.

The Cadets went through a gruelling programme which included: completing sections on front line First Aid, casualty evacuation, learning how to set up a temporary base, camoflage and concealment, field tactics and section/ platoon attacks.

Cadet Corporal Foster said: “The first few days were tough as there was a lot to take in. The Army Cadets on the course were used to this sort of training. After a while it started to make sense and I was lucky enough to win the accolade of Best Endeavoured Cadet on the course.”

This is a fantastic award for the Cadet Corporal Foster who was identified as the hardest working out of the group of 212 personnel.

The two Cadets hope to be a part of the Air Cadet Junior Leader programme in the future.
