Volunteer Instructor

Instructors help to deliver the cadet training program under the leadership of the unit Commanding Officer and Training Officer. No qualifications or experience needed to start as all training provided included the opportunity to do water sports instructor qualifications and other outward bounds activities. If you're enthusiastic and can commit to 2 and a half hours a week on a Monday or Thursday (or both!) then we'd love to hear from you. We have children queueing to join but we can't do it without you.
