Junior NCO Success.

Two cadets from 51 (Orton) Squadron, Corporal Sam Avent and Cadet Hannah Graham joined 38 other cadets from across Beds and Cambs wing on the Junior Non Commissioned Office Course at RAF Henlow.

JNCO HenlowThe cadets started the training programme on Friday night which continued over the weekend. The cadets were given presentations on the role of a JNCO, leadership and leadership styles, and also presentation skills. The cadets also took part in Drill, and in particular each cadet was able to lead their own syndicate through a number of manoeuvres.

Each cadet will receive a written report by the training team and these will be sent to their Sqn commanders so that feedback can be given. Cadet Graham said "I've learnt so much from attending this course and I am eager now to put it in practice in the squadron".
