On the 2nd -4th of December two cadets from 2418 squadron travelled to RAF Wittering, to participate in the Initial Non-Commissioned Officer course, along with 43 other cadets from across the wing. Throughout the weekend the two cadets were being assessed on their; behaviour, drill, uniform and overall teamwork with the other cadets.
The cadets had to complete two drill assessments, a leadership exam as well as having to plan and teach a lesson. On both mornings they had a uniform inspection that affected the final score that they would receive at the end of the weekend.
The weekend was aimed at trying to improve the cadet’s leadership skills and their chances to receive a promotion. Overall both cadets came back from the weekend exhausted but they had a sense of accomplishment as well as a wider knowledge of their roles within their squadron.
