Instruction in the method of Instruction

Article posted: Apr 22, 2013 by Flt Lt Waplington

Two eager cadets have attended and completed the Method of Instruction (known as the MOI course ) course at 1359 Beeston Squadron.

Cadet Sergeant Lauren Priest and Cadet Corporal Daniel Bradley travelled to 1359 Beeston Squadron for the course. The course consisted of various topics such as: instructor qualities, the training cycle, the structure and plan of a lesson, focusing on its aims and objectives. All the cadets then have to deliver a 5 minute presentation of their own.

Cadet Sergeant Lauren Priest presentation involved how to make the perfect cup of Tea, while Cadet Corporal Daniel Bradley chosen subject was the smoke alarm. The object of the presentations is to test how confident the cadets are in front of live audiences, how well they involve members of the class in the lesson.

Cadet Corporal Daniel Bradley is quoted as saying about the course “The course was a brand new experience and definitely worth while. I look forward to the assessment and hopefully being able to wear the lanyard”
Cadet Sergeant Lauren Priest said “I enjoyed the course, and cannot wait to put into practice what I have learned. I met some great people on the course, I would recommend the course to anyone“

Both the cadets from 138 will have to present a lesson in front of their own squadron’s cadets and members of staff, including the wing staff officer. Once this has been completed and after satisfactory standard has been achieved, both will reward with the Yellow Lanyard.

138 cadets and members of staff would like to thank 1359 Beeston ATC for the venue for the course.
