YOUR CHILD'S SAFETY

WHY JOIN?

The RAF Air Cadets offers so many activities and opportunities for both cadets and for staff. You do not need to have been a cadet or have served in any of the armed forces in order to become a staff member. You will have the opportunity to gain qualifications valid in both inside and outside of the organisation. You will also make new friends as well as having opportunities to socialise. If you decide to go into uniform you will receive remuneration for your time at certain activities. Most of all you will get the satisfaction of knowing that you have helped the Next Generation.

 

HOW TO JOIN AS A MEMBER OF STAFF

If you are aged 20 years or older and fancy helping cadets reach their potential you can apply to join as a staff member. We take cadet safety seriously thus you will need to be security checked and pass a DBS enhanced check which are free to the applicant. Initial contact should be made with the Squadron you wish to join, you can find contact details on the Find A Squadron link, you can always transfer from squadron to squadron at any time, On initial contact you will be asked for your details which will be sent to Wing Headquarters.

You will then invite from Wing Headquarters to an Induction Evening where you will be guided through the application forms. Once your DBS has cleared, typically it takes a few weeks, you will be invited to attend a weekend Adult Volunteer Induction Programme course where you will receive safeguarding advice as well as first aid training and other information to make the most from your time as a staff member. You will then be permitted to join your chosen Squadron where you will be mentored before you go solo with teaching cadets. You will serve 12 months as a probationary period as a Civilian Instructor after which, if you are interested, you will be able to apply to become a member of uniform staff.ญญญญ
