In January 2016, BTEA Academy launched its Combined Cadet Force (CCF) Royal Navy section.

Becoming a cadet within the Combined Cadet Force can be a life-changing experience. Being a cadet gives our students the opportunity to take part in a huge range of exciting and adventurous, military-themed activities. Cadets quickly build important skills like teamwork, confidence and self-discipline, as well as having the opportunity to take on leadership roles.

At the Academy, cadets parade once a week, completing the Royal Navy’s cadet syllabus (syllabus PDF below). The topics covered encourage the navy’s core values of commitment, courage, discipline, respect for others, integrity and loyalty. We feel that these values, as well as skills such as teamwork and leadership will be valuable to all our students whether they wish to pursue a civilian or military career.

CCF Syllabus

Outside of term time BTEA Cadets have taken part in activities including: power boat level 2 training and accreditation, BSAC scuba diving training and accreditation, swimming pool life guard training, sailing, including spending a week sailing in the English Channel, and leadership training courses. There will also be many other opportunities available such as powerboating, windsurfing, canoeing and first aid courses, as well as a range of land-based adventure training activities.
