Henley Army Cadet Force Call for New Adult Volunteers

Henley Army Cadet Force are currently looking for new Adult Volunteers to assist with the Army Cadets based in Friday Street in Henley.

The Army Cadet Force is a national youth organisation for 12- to 18-year-olds sponsored and supported by the Ministry of Defence. It provides a challenging and varied syllabus based on military themes.

Detachment Commander Lieutenant Thomas Fearn added: “It is important to know that no previous military experience is required, all training will be provided to equip you with the knowledge and skills to make a real impact on the 60 cadets we have on our books. The benefits of being an instructor are huge, military courses include Obstacle Course instructor, weapons & range instructors; the ACF also provides Adventure training courses allowing you to do literally whatever you want.”

The Army Cadets parade every Wednesday from 1900 – 2130, with many weekends spread throughout the year; however, there is no expectation for anyone to do everything.

A normal parade night entails: cadets arrive ready for evenings training and form up on parade; they will then undertake training taught by instructors or senior cadets – training can be outdoors in our fieldcraft area, or indoors using our purpose-built range and building. All members then have a 10-minute break for socialising before continuing their training or preparation before finally forming up for the Detachment Commander’s debrief.

If the above sounds of interest to you please contact Lt Thomas Fearn on 3875fear@armymail.mod.uk or you can fill out our online form by searching: Army Cadet Force Adult Volunteers (https://armycadets.com/volunteer-with-us/register-as-a-volunteer/)
