Instructors: Train, guide and supervise cadets and other volunteers following the national structured SCC Training Programme. Volunteers can, depending on their skills, roles, abilities, experience and preferences work as officers, senior rates, non-uniformed or as affiliated instructors
Sea Cadets is one of the UK’s largest and oldest nautical youth charities. Established in 1856 we’ve been supporting young people with a head start in life for over 150 years. We enjoy close links with Britain’s maritime community and our biggest supporter is the Royal Navy, whose customs and traditions are at the heart of what we do. As a volunteer you’ll be helping us to deliver a fantastic cadet experience that inspires young people through fun and nautical adventure, to learn and develop new skills that will give them the best possible head start in life. Our volunteers are vital in delivering this and we will support you every step of the way.
All volunteers join the Sea Cadets at a national level but are attached to a local unit in their home area and where the need and their skills will be most useful. As a volunteer you commit to contribute your time, energy and skills to support the national Sea Cadets charity as well as your local unit. Your commitment is hugely valued and can prove exceptionally rewarding. Working as a volunteer does not represent a contractual engagement of employment.
There are detailed recruitment requirements for all volunteers and these may vary slightly dependant upon your role. Key elements include:
— You must be 18 or over
