We are proud to offer the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme to our cadets. 

As a cadet with 1289 Squadron, you will be able to participate in the DofE Award Scheme, at Bronze, Silver and Gold level. 

The Components:

  1. Volunteering - helping the community.
  2. Physical - get active and improve your fitness!
  3. Skills - find new interests and talents.
  4. Expedition - learn the art of map and compass navigation.
  5. Residential (Gold Award only) - spend time away on Camp, learning new skills and meeting people.

As a cadet, you cover these five components through simply being a cadet and taking part in the activities we have on offer, such as camps, flying, shooting, drill and much more. 

You will walk in beautiful locations such as the Cotswolds and the Elan Valley and Llanbedr regions of Wales.
