Helene Devey who acts as the Training and Development Worker for Sea Cadets North West came into school recently encouraging Year 8 and Year 9 pupils to sign up. Below is the information about Sea Cadets sent to the school by Helene. We hope that many of our young people take full advantage of this fantastic opportunity.
The Sea Cadets use a nautical theme based on the customs of the Royal Navy to teach skills from cookery to computers, engineering, first aid, sailing, navigation and the art of seamanship both on land and on the water. Today, 14,000 young people based in 400 units in towns, cities and ports across the UK are challenging themselves and developing new skills supported by 9,000 volunteers. From rock climbing to Marine Engineering, there are so many challenging and exciting opportunities waiting. Sea Cadets meet once or twice a week and during the summer when all the sailing and boating activity gets started, a unit will be out on the water most weekends too. Young people can take part in all kinds of competitions from music, power boating and sailing, to football and Drill, plus learn nautical skills as they complete their training. Not only will it be fun, but the new skills will definitely give you a head start in life and boost your confidence – weekends will never be the same again!
All of our training courses are designed to stretch and develop our young people and provide them with new life skills. They are carried out by highly qualified instructors who are either employees of the charity or volunteers. The courses will invariably lead to useful additional internal and external qualifications for the Cadets. External qualifications include first aid, RYA boating, D of E and BTECs in public service, mechanical and electrical engineering.
What we do: Adventure Training, Camping, Canoeing, Cook/Steward, Communications, Diving, Drill, First Aid, Field craft, Kayaking, Marine Engineering, Meteorology, Mountain Biking, Mountain Leadership, Navigation, Physical Training, Pulling (Rowing), Sailing (including offshore), Seamanship, Shooting and much more.

They meet on a Monday and Thursday 7.15 – 9.15pm so just turn up (please bring a parent/guardian to the first session to sign consent forms).
