Oxfordshire Army Cadet Force Are Looking for New Volunteers

The Army Cadet Force is a fantastic opportunity for children to make new friends, gain experiences and develop themselves into strong and charismatic individuals, no matter what they aim to do in later life.

Our cadets have the opportunity to learn real military tactics in live and exciting scenarios, as well as the opportunity to do a lot of adventurous training like canoeing, raft building and mountain climbing.

We are now back to face to face training, and need the help of new adult volunteers to help teach and aid in giving our cadets the best possible experience they can get with valuable skills, that they’ll be able to use in their household or work and keep for a lifetime. Adult volunteers are not required to have any military background, but are encouraged to be enthusiastic and passionate about helping the younger generation to become the best of themselves and push their limits to try more, do more and achieve more.

All our adult volunteers are provided with full training in all subjects surrounding the Army Cadet Force as well as useful information on teaching and helping to encourage the younger generation. Just like the cadets our volunteers can still benefit by meeting new people, gaining valuable experiences and skills as well as knowing they’re having a huge positive impact on the cadets lives.

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.
