There are also many other learning and development opportunities, which could see you become a qualified instructor in a huge range of activities that the Sea Cadet Corps offers such as: hill walking, kayaking, canoeing, climbing, communications, first aid, sailing, power boating, are to name just a few! These activities are also recognised and registered with external examining bodies such as MLTBBELA, BCU, SPARYA, Duke of Edinburgh and all for the fraction of the cost!

The financial support that we receive from the Royal Navy enables us to offer our uniformed volunteers a number of days' training pay and travelling expenses each year.  

Alpha Company and the Royal Marines Cadets enjoy the benefit of the strong close liaison and links with the regular Corps of Royal Marines and we are honoured and privileged to be part of that 'Corps', the best family in the world!

It doesn't matter whether you've got previous experience dealing with young people or not - we're just looking for willing volunteers who want to be part of the team and enjoy the satisfaction of seeing our Cadets develop and mature into responsible adults. As you'd expect, all our volunteers are rigorously vetted.
