Sandy Air Cadet achieves BTEC Distinction

Cadet Sergeant Joshua Bruce recently completed a Level 2 BTEC in Public Services, achieving a distinction grade, through the Cadet Vocational Qualification Organisation (CVQO).

The qualification is eligible to all cadets aged 16 – 19 years, completely free of charge, and requires both theory and practical work to complete, such as interview techniques, CV writing, communications skills, first aid, and adventure training.

Much of the qualification is targeted at enhancing leadership, communications, problem solving, fitness and team work, all skills that have a real use both as a cadet, but in working life.

Sergeant Bruce has also previously received a BTEC Intermediate Certificate in Aviation Studies, equivalent to two GCSEs, through the Air Cadet Organisation.

Cadet Sergeant Joshua Bruce commented, “It’s really good to have got a BTEC distinction, as this is worth 4 GCSEs. There are many qualifications open to cadets, and they are definitely worth the time to achieve”.
