Put your passions into practice. Getting highly skilled in your favourite area of study means that you could end up with a number of widely recognised BTEC qualifications. It’ll help you in the future when you’re talking to possible employers. They should already be impressed that you’ve been a cadet, but BTECs will really show them what you’re made of. We have a range of vocational qualifications available to you, through either ourselves or the Cadet Vocational Qualification Organisation (CVQO). Here’s a quick overview:
- BTEC Certificate in Aviation Studies (equivalent to 2 GCSEs, A-C grades)
- BTEC Award in Aviation Studies (equivalent to 1 GCSE, A-C grade)
- BTEC First Diploma in Public Services (equivalent to 4 GCSEs, A-C grades)
- BTEC First Diploma in Music (equivalent to 4 GCSEs, A-C grades)
- ILM Certificate in Team Leading – Level 2 – ATC cadets only
First Aid is another essential skill you can pick up – train in this important area and you may be awarded a certificate from St Johns Ambulance. If those skills were called upon you could make all the difference in a life or death situation.
City & Guilds – cadets can also benefit from certain vocational qualifications in management, as can our volunteers.
