Eleven cadets from Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wing who are approaching their eighteenth birthday have completed their Staff Cadet Course held at Fort Blockhouse, Gosport.
Officer Commanding, Wing Commander Peter Priest, spoke to the cadets answering questions regarding the change in their role and status on reaching adulthood. The day included lessons on duty of care, electronic communications and safeguarding.
These cadets will now be allowed to stay in the ATC until their twentieth birthday sharing their experiences with more junior cadets and increasing the effectiveness of their Squadrons.
