ABOUT OUR DETACHMENT
Guernsey Army Cadet Force (RGLI) is part of a national youth organisation aimed at inspiring young people to achieve both physically and mentally whilst developing self-confidence, teamwork and leadership.
Boys and girls aged between 12 (and in year 8), to 18, from any school, college or not in school are welcome to attend.
Cadets have the opportunity to take part in numerous activities, including First Aid training (which leads to a nationally recognised award), DofE (The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award), BTEC Certificate in Public Services (equivalent to 4 GCSE A* grades), not to mention the military skills and adventurous training.
The cadets parade every Wednesday from 1900 to 2130 and every Sunday from 1000 to 1230 in addition to having an opportunity to attend a 9-day Annual Camp during the school summer holidays.
Guernsey ACF will attend parades such as the Liberation Day, Battle of Britain and Remembrance Day parades.
As part of the training syllabus, cadets should complete a number of community activities, which they do with great gusto and receive great praise for their efforts.
