Fieldcraft Training allows cadets to develop their personal skills and knowledge in a wide range of activities which relate directly to working and living in a field environment. In addition, it offers a wide range of opportunities for leadership at all levels.
As fieldcraft training is a core cadet activity, and therefore each cadet is expected to progress through the 18 fieldcraft lessons, which vary from field administration, building a shelter, movement at night and cooking in the field.
Military Skills builds upon and develops what Cadets have learnt during their field craft training. Military Skills also introduce the use of weapon handling and the knowledge and application of minor/basic military tactics. These events are run at a Corps level and are open to anyone over 16.
To allow cadets to participate in any Fieldcraft training, all staff are required to carry out further specialist training to ensure that the cadets and staff are familiar with all the skills required and to ensure compliance is met in line with the ACO policies and guidance.
