This week 26 cadets from across the Battalion successfully gained a BTEC – Level 4 qualification in Teamwork, Personal Skills and Citizenship in Uniformed Youth Organisations.
The cadets who are all aged 13 and 14 years embarked on their studies in September 2014. The award which is linked to the 1 star APC syllabus is designed to enhance the learning experience of the cadets involved while at the same time gaining them a nationally recognised qualification.
One of the cadets who gained the award LBdr Amy Coulter from A Troop RA said:
I decided to participate in the BTEC as it sounded worthwhile. I was also looking forward to gaining the award so that I could add it to my CV which I could use in later life. I enjoyed the overall experience of being involved in the award and I now plan to start another qualification in the future
