First weekend course since returning to face to face
As part of our adult volunteer development we offer training for those wishing to transition from a civilian instructor into a uniformed voluntary position in the form of a Pre-Uniform course. This course provides the knowledge as well as training to progress through either the Senior NCO or Commissioned Officer pathway.
This year saw the release of the all new Pre-Uniform course combining two virtual sessions, an on squadron individual learning programme and an in-person weekend course at RAF Wittering. Over the weekend, 10 adult volunteers, wishing to make the move into uniform attended the final part of the Pre-Uniform course at RAF Wittering.
On the course the students consolidated what they learnt from the previous virtual sessions and the development undertaken on squadrons using the Development Matrix. As well as completing further training in leadership and policy, and preparing the students for the Interview and OASC processes.
Squadron Leader Buckingham, Wing Training Officer responsible for Volunteer and Cadet Development, said “it was invigorating to be back delivering face-to-face training, surrounded by such enthusiastic volunteers. The students were fantastic and really bought the new course format to life.”
