What To Expect
At Medway Victory we aim to give young people an experience that will help them grow into the individuals they want to be in a safe and friendly environment. Through various activities and adventures, we learn teamwork, respect, loyalty, self-confidence, commitment, self-discipline, honesty and how to be the best version of ourselves.
As well as the Sea Cadet Corps Training plan there are Activities including: sailing, canoeing, paddle boarding, rowing, archery, shooting, camping, and adventurous training with expedition training. We learn drill, armed drill and piping, seamanship, and music such as drumming and marching band. We also learn first aid, engineering, catering and stewarding. Many of these learnings can lead to a BTEC level 1 and level 2 qualification. Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Silver and Gold Awards too.
You will be required to attend Unit regularly every week and can choose whether to join in with all the extra activities at weekends and holidays.
Training will lead to becoming a fully-fledged cadet, and then progressing through the ranks all the way to Petty Officer cadet all within the sea cadet promise:
“I promise to serve my God, the Queen, my Country and the Sea Cadet Corps and to obey the orders of my superior Officers. I will be proud of my uniform and be smart and seaman like in wearing it and always do my duty.”
We also offer a great path for adult volunteers and welcome people who have time to commit to the Unit on a regular basis. If you have Sea Cadet experience or qualifications in any of the above activities we would love to hear from you. As our Unit grows we also require more adult volunteers.
