There has been lots of lock down success at Linton Squadron. Starting with both cadet corporal Tysoe and cadet Webb completing their Master classification awards, gaining themselves a BTEC Level 2 in Aviation Studies.
We’ve had a vast array of guest speakers joining us on our virtual parade evenings conducted over Teams video. We have had talks from fast jet pilots, the red arrow display teams and even space engineers!
We have been conducting all sorts of training over Teams in preparation of our return to face to face activities. For example we have completed leadership and weapons theory, meaning that we can complete practical aspects and assessments when we return so we can continue with all the activities we love straight away.
Our civilian welfare committee have had several meetings and have approved the purchase of new first aid and sports equipment. A new resuscitation manikin and choke simulation vest will be on squadron ready for our return, helping us improve and deliver St John’s Youth First Aid awards more effectively. The sports kit will help CI Cubitt run an extensive and varied programme moving forwards.
There has been lots of progress in delivering the Duke of Edinburgh’s scheme, with cadets making the most of the fantastic weather to complete their sports and skills section of the award. As soon as we return face to face we plan on delivering both practise and assessed exhibitions and complete both bronze and silver awards for many cadets at Linton.
