The primary purpose of fieldcraft training is to develop cadets’ 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. So if you have natural leadership abilities, they will definitely shine here!
Fieldcraft is separate from Military Skills and covers activities like shelter construction, webbing usage, navigation and personal administration skills and other subjects. Military Skills will be carried on authorised courses such as the Junior Leaders course or Air Cadet leadership courses at Frimley Park or Nesscliffe CTC.
Cadets will have the opportunity to conduct Fieldcraft Exercises at local training areas and more advanced areas such as DTE Warcop and other Defence Training Estates. All exercises and training is run in accordance with ACP 16 Manual of Fieldcraft Training. All fieldcraft activities are properly authorised through the organisation.
