Cadets Rewarded for their hard work and Dedication

Btec Public ServicesThe success of two local Air Cadets in securing BTEC qualifications in Public Services has been recognised by the presentation of their Certificates. Corporal Wells and Corporal Robinett achieved some of the highest grades possible being awarded Merit and Distinction*.

The internationally respected qualification delivered to Cadets via the Cadet Vocational Qualification Organisation (CVQO) mixes theory and practical elements with an emphasis on leadership, teamwork, communications, problem solving and fitness.

Both Cadets, being members of 51 (Orton) Squadron for four years, have completed a syllabus which includes completion of professional CV preparation, interviewing techniques, communication, first aid, adventure training, health and nutrition. Corporal Wells said, “I am grateful to Air Cadets for giving me the opportunity to complete this BTec, which would have taken 2 years at our local college. The presence of this on my CV can only help me in my future career. Corporal Robinett wanted to pass on his thanks to all members of the corp who have assisted with his achievements.

Flt Lt Mason commented that “Achieving BTEC standard in Public Services is no mean task, particularly when the work is juggled with school, family and work commitments, but our Cadets have welcomed the challenge and have worked hard to achieve this valuable qualification which represents the equivalent of 4 GCSE’s”.
