Challenging CPL to SGT Course

By Cadet Cpl Andrew Oxby (Squadron Press Pack)

4 Cadet Non Commissioned Officers (NCOs) from 1406 (Spalding) Squadron Air Training Corps recently attended a Cpl-Sgt course held at RAF Henlow by the Wing Training Team from the 8th-10th February.

The weekend involved all four of the NCOs being tested on their Corps knowledge and being  assessed on their ability to instruct a drill movement of their choice, assess their standard of leadership and their capability in teaching a 15 minute lesson.

Over the weekend they were also judged on their standards of self discipline and were inspected both mornings.

The scores from each of the assessments were taken in and all 4 of them achieved passes for the course. Cpl Rachel Goodacre said “I really enjoyed the course and feel that it has given me a real sense of the responsibilities and what is expected of a Senior NCO, I hope to take what I have learnt from this experience back to the squadron and use it to improve the standards of our cadets”
