cadets

With four military cadet forces plus the Fire Service and Volunteer Police Cadets, all based in Plymouth, there are plenty of opportunities for young people. Cadets have opportunities to take part in a wide array of activities, ranging from skills training, target rifle shooting, flying and gliding, sailing and other water bound activities. In addition, making lifelong friendships, gaining valuable leadership and personal development skills and training is also a key part of being a Cadet.
