After a probationary period as a Civilian Instructor (for more information, click here), staff in the Royal Air Force Air Cadets have the opportunity to progress into uniform as either a Senior Non-Commissioned Officer (SNCO) or a commissioned Officer. Many see this as the ‘next step’ in their RAFAC staff career, and progressing into uniform can be an incredibly beneficial and exciting experience. Uniformed staff are expected to commit to 12 hours a month across parade nights and extra activities. Uniformed staff will always be found on squadrons but also at Wing and Region level, where they will take on roles in which they are a Subject Matter Expert, such as shooting, sports, aviation, media and so on. Both in uniform or out it is possible for you to develop your skills in any of these areas that interest you, and further information about this can be found here.
