Graduating with a Level 6 qualification from CVQO

Graduating was  an amazing experience at the Kia Oval where I, and over 50 other Cadet Force Adult Volunteers graduated with a CVQO qualification. The awards were presented by CVQO chairman of trustees, Lord Lingfield, and were from both the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) and City & Guilds with the highest level awarded being the City & Guilds Membership – the equivalent of a Masters degree

I graduated with a Level 6 qualification, the Graduate of the City and Guilds Institute (GCGI) which is the equivalent to a Bachelors Honors degree.

For my thesis, I chose to write about training and ways in which this can be improved to enhance the Cadet experience and also to develop our new adults. I am hoping to use this experience to further  shape the way we train in future and am looking forward to helping to introduce the many changes to training this year will bring.

During the day I met lots of other Cadet Force adult volunteers from different branches of the ACF, and each with their own story. Some even travelled from far and wide to be there, from as far as Trinidad and Tobago and the Honk Kong Adventure Corps! It goes to show we are a small part of a big family of Adults and Cadets alike, all with the same aim and incentive – To Inspire to Achieve.
