Course Credit for Sandy Cadets

Air Cadets from 22 (Sandy) Squadron recently passed with credit while attending a course for potential and current cadet Junior Non-Commissioned Officers (JNCO).

Cadet Jakub Grabowski (15) and Cadet Callan Whitbread (15) both attended the course, held at RAF Henlow, which teaches current and potential Corporals, the roles and responsibilities of being a JNCO in the Air Cadets.

The course included learning about the roles of a JNCO, dress regulations, leadership skills, drill, and welfare and discipline. Throughout the course the cadets were assessed on their appearance & bearing, leadership, drill, theory exam and presentation skills, with both cadets receiving a credit grade for the course.

Cadet Jakub Grabowski said, “I attended the course to improve my leadership skills, and to work towards a possible promotion to Corporal. The course was enjoyable, and I learnt a lot from the experience “.

Cadet Whitbread and Cadet Grabowski have both also recently attended the Bedfordshire & Cambridgeshire Wing Junior Rugby trials, both gaining a place on the Wing Junior Rugby team, who will be playing at the inter-region competition on Sunday 17th March.
