staff member you will need to be responsible for young persons, you will be
supported through training to give you all the necessary skills required to
be a staff member in the Royal Air Force Air Cadets.

Civilian Instructor responsible for supervision of cadets. You will also
assist in delivering a training program. If you require you can attend
courses on subjects to improve your knowledge, many of the courses will be
