Great Opportunity for CCF NCOs

On Tuesday, the Y12 NCOs had the opportunity to start their BTEC Level 2 Diploma in Teamwork and Personal Development in the Community. This is an internationally-recognised qualification that has been proven to help with applications for entry to higher and further education as well as in gaining employment. It hones vital life-skills skills in leadership, teamwork, communications, problem-solving, and fitness; skills demonstrated by our NCOs on a weekly basis. In essence, the award is a qualification that officially recognises the personal development cadets gained through the CCF.

The organisation that facilitates the award, CVQO, sent two delegates to assist with completion of the first workbook. Cadets were guided in providing evidence of how they have worked as part of a team and demonstrated leadership, completing the first stage in no time at all. As if a free qualification couldn’t get any better, CVQO have said they will fund a day of adventurous training after Easter on which pupils will also receive support to complete their second workbook, in time for it to be added to their UCAS applications.
