New cadet NCO team is taking shape

Cpl Promotions: What is amazing about cadets is when cadets themselves take up the challenge of teaching and leading activities. Congratulations to Cdt F, Cdt J, Cdt M, and Cdt H who joined Cdt R in being promoted from cadet to corporal over the last 2-3 weeks. This is the beginning of building a new cadet NCO team and Sqn flight structure for 2024. With solid numbers of engaged cadets of a high calibre, promotion was highly competitive with fine margins. At least two years of experience as a cadet helps. It's not a badge, it's a role. Now they get to experience it from a leadership perspective.

Promotion criteria included:

  • Good attendance record - Last 12 months.
  • Good drill standards and awareness.
  • High uniform standards - consistently worn.
  • First Class or higher classification expected.
  • Blue leadership or higher is expected
  • Wing or above blues or green camp experience desirable.
  • Wing JNCO course desirable.
  • Engagement in Sqn community services desirable.
  • Engagement in DofE Bronze or higher desirable.
  • Other badges (Music, Cyber, Shooting, Flying, Road Marching) considered.
  • Sense of humour.
  • Enthusiasm.
  • Moral courage.
