Description

Bridge of Don Sea Cadets is a friendly, productive and energetic unit within the national Sea Cadet movement. The kids benefit from the support, training and guidance of a dedicated team of voluntary staff, civilian assistants and parental supporters. We are actively looking for new members of staff (18+) to assist in the running of our unit. You have the option of joining as a civilian instructor or as a uniformed member of staff.
Civilian Instructor is a role ideally suited to someone who can contribute to the unit but does not wish to enrol as a fully uniformed member of staff. All we ask is that you give up some time every week with the odd weekend throughout the year.
Uniformed Staff are responsible for the training of cadets within the Corps. Specialised skills can be developed at Sea Cadet training centres throughout the country. You will initially be interviewed to join as a Civilian Instructor and will be required to go through an enhanced criminal records check. Once this has been done you will work towards becoming a Petty Officer (SCC). You will be required to attend a Sea Cadet Instructors Qualifying course at one of our National Training Centres, obtain a First Aid qualification as well as receive training and assessment in Instructional Methods.

This opportunity will assist you in gaining the following skills:

  • Interpersonal/Confidence
  • Teamwork
  • Problem solving/Creativity
  • Planning/Organising
  • Leadership/Management

Training will be provided by the organisation for this position:

All volunteers go through a comprehensive induction process covering all areas of Sea Cadet training. You will need to attend a national adult induction day at an area training centre. Each new staff volunteer will be issued with an induction booklet which they will work through with a dedicated member of staff or committee. New staff have to attend a 2 day course. The volunteer whether a non uniform or uniform will also be asked to fill in formal paperwork which includes a PVG application as they will be working with children.
