There are CCF Contingents in over 400 Secondary and Public Schools within the UK. Each contingent offers students a broad range of challenging, exciting, adventurous and service related activities.
The core aim of the Combined Cadet Force (CCF) is to facilitate the development of personal responsibilities, leadership and self- discipline. Each CCF is an educational partnership with the Ministry of Defence. Most Contingents have Royal Navy / Royal Marines, Army and Royal Air Force Sections. With UTC having such close links with the Royal Navy we have a thriving Royal Navy section.
The UTC Royal Navy section is over 30 strong and is made up of cadets from KS 4,5,6. The administration of the Contingent is the responsibility of the School Staff Instructor (SSI) . Dedicated UTC staff and qualified military staff support the Contingent. The CCF parade on a Tuesday afternoon and all sessions follow the RN CCF Syllabus.
All cadets are encouraged to attend annual camps at BRNC (Dartmouth), HMS BRISTOL (Portsmouth) and they visit Jupiter Point (HMS RALEIGH) for afloat training and HMS DRAKE to complete the RN Swimming Test. In addition to the Contingent activities there are over 100 courses available throughout the year. These courses are sponsored by the RN and are a fraction of the cost of their civilian counterparts. Many courses lead to national recognised qualifications and include scuba diving courses, mountaineering, rock climbing, First Aid, NPLQ, ice climbing and skiing courses. There are also band, shooting and flying courses.
Being a member of the UTC CCF will indicate to future employers that you were motivated to join and have the incentive to complete a voluntary military syllabus.
