Get QualifiedCadet Force Adult Volunteers all have the opportunity to acquire First Aid qualifications, Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme passes and diplomas and graduate level qualifications in public service through the BTEC scheme. In addition, and because the only people who can assess cadets properly are the adults who work with them, we have recently gained approval from SQA to offer qualifications which recognise the valuable work our CFAVs do in developing young people and enhancing their future prospects: Conduct the Assessment Process (Level 8)
This Award is for non-workbased assessors, and recognises the skills required to support and assess young people in the cadet organisations. Although it is not mandatory, it can enhance adult volunteers’ experience as well as their CVs.
Most of the work required to achieve the qualification is practical. Adults who are regularly assessing cadets are already working to this standard, but are able to add this gain a recognised qualification.Conduct the Internal Verification Process (Level 8)
This Award demonstrates a commitment to quality on the part of people undertaking it. The internal verifier’s role involves supporting assessors and ensuring a quality standard is consistently maintained across our Centre.
Training is available in both these areas, and although the qualifications are not mandatory, we can provide support for you to do them and reap the benefits of professional recognition.For more information on SQA awards, please contact Jill Simpson at [email protected]
