Cadets bring great attributes, and a great attitude to the workplace. Find out more about the skills young people gain, supporting the programme, or recruiting young people with cadet experience.

For many young people, being in a cadet force helps them to develop a whole host of important life skills, including a level of maturity, self-discipline and respect, that they would not otherwise possess at such a young age. Research has already shown that there is a correlation between cadet attendance and improvements in academic performance at school - and many employers are now starting to recognise the value that cadets can bring to the workplace.
