ATC Cadets can use their squadron activities as part of their Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (D of E). What is not so well known is that adult staff up to the age of 24 can also be part of the scheme. The lower age limit for cadets is 14.
Air Cadet activities and training can be a very large part of a D of E programme, but it will still be necessary for cadets and staff to make extra efforts outside the ATC activities. Reading the leaflet “Flying High with the DofE” is recommended; this can be obtained from Sqn Ldr Jones.
There are three levels of DofE : Bronze, Silver and Gold. Each is described in the links below.DofE Bronze D of E Silver D of E Gold
