The fourth Cadet Method of Instruction Course was held at 443 (Basingstoke) Squadron on Sunday 30th October 2011.

Five cadets from Squadrons 443, 1105 and 2412 who have recently passed their Master Air Cadet exams came together to learn how to teach cadets the subjects they recently completed.

The day was spent learning how to deliver successful lessons and included sessions on what makes a good and bad instructor, icebreakers and groundrules and planning a lesson. The day culminated in a practice 10 minute lesson of their choice which the cadets prepared.

The cadets will now return to their units and practice what they have learnt. When they feel ready they will be observed carrying out a lesson. On successfully passing this phase they will be awarded their yellow lanyard and officially become an Instructor Cadet.

Flight Lieutenant Pat Phillips, the Senior Course Instructor said "These cadets were extremely receptive to the course and undertook each session with enthusiasm. Given the opportunity on their units they will make extremely capable instructors"
