Training the Future Leaders

On Saturday 17 Jan 09 a number of our Junior NCOs and Cadet Section Commanders took part in a Sqn  Training Day to equip them for their role as the commander of a Section of 8 – 10 cadets, responsible for their attendance, discipline, welfare, subscriptions and drill.

This is a big responibility for the Section Commanders who are usually 15 to 16 years old and this course is designed to give them a “toolkit” to be able to carry out the role with confidence and success. This was delivered in a combination of role plays, lectures and discussions.

Instructors on the course were Pilot Officer Kristina Pisano, Sgt Yvonne Faulkner, Cdt FS William Brown  and the  OC Sqn Ldr Jerry Godden.
