Cadet Apprenticeship Pathway
High quality, work ready, enthusiastic people
What and Why
Young People and Adult Volunteers who are members of the Cadet Forces learn a wide variety of skills that are transferable into the workplace. These skills include leadership, team building, problem-solving, communication, health and physical fitness, sport, social action, music, volunteering and community support. Cadets and Adult Volunteers are offered qualifications that recognise these skills and provide tangible evidence of their achievements. Employers looking to recruit good quality apprentices and to offer career opportunities can benefit through engaging with Cadets and Adult Volunteers via the Cadet Apprenticeship Pathway. This will give them direct access to high quality, work ready, enthusiastic people who have not only attained academic qualifications through their schools and colleges but also have a wide range of life experiences and skills gained from the cadet forces
