One of our most popular co-curricular activities here at St Edward’s, the Combined Cadet Force (CCF), is an excellent tool for developing personal leadership skills in young adults as well as improving communication skills, self-reliance, discipline and team work.

During October half-term, 12 of our Cadets took part in training and assessment for their CFIT (Cadet Force Instructional Techniques) qualification. This teaching qualification gives the Cadets the necessary skills to be able to deliver both skill and theory based lessons from the Cadet syllabus.

These newly qualified Cadets will now use their new skills on a regular basis to deliver training to their fellow Cadets. This experience will be invaluable in later life – the ability to be an effective leader and speak with confidence in front of a group is an often desirable, but rare quality in the workplace.

Cadets who have completed their CFIT qualification:

Cpl M McKenna, Cpl A Mander, LCpl M Thomas, LCpl Magume, LCpl M Allwood, Cdt O Messenger, Cdt O Risborough, Cdt B Duffy, Cdt M Benwell, Cdt A Roch-Berry, Cdt Genko

The Contingent would like to thank Sgt Cooper of the West Training Evaluation and Support Team from the RAF for his support during this training event.
