Your training starts as soon as you begin your staff journey as a Cadet Forces Adult Volunteer (CFAV) with the Adult Volunteer Induction Programme, a course that teaches you about the values, ethos and structure of the Corps as well as what we expect from you as a member of staff, safeguarding, further training opportunities and the two routes into uniform. Following this, further courses are available depending on the individual’s position within their squadron and their future aspirations within the RAFAC.
There is a wide variety of courses available to staff in Warwickshire and Birmingham Wing dependant upon your interests and what you wish to gain during your time with us. If you’re interested in fieldcraft, why not attend the Fieldcraft Instructor’s Course? If teaching in a classroom is more your style, you could help out on JNCO or Blue Leadership courses. If you like sport, there is the chance for you to become a Sports Leader. The opportunities are endless as a CFAV in the RAFAC.
You can find more information about being a member of staff here, and if you’re already with us, speak to your Squadron Commander about the opportunities available to you and how you can develop your skillset.
