Cadet Trainer (2)

This course is to assist young people to acquire new skills and gain confidence in planning and delivering both theoretical and practical skills as part of a training session.

The Cadet Trainer 2 course is open to cadets over the age of 15 who have complete Cadet Trainer 1 at least six months previously.   Cadets do not have to progress to Cadet Trainer 3.

This course covers:

  • Revisiting demonstration skills
  • Role of the trainer in supporting learners
  • Making learners feel welcome
  • Verbal and non-verbal communication
  • Barriers to learning
  • Training strategies/activities
  • Training aids
  • Questioning skills
  • Formative assessments
  • Planning a session

At the end of the course an assessment takes place using skills test 9 to identify the individual’s strengths and weaknesses.

The Cadet Trainer 2 course requires a Training Development Advisor (TDA) to be the lead trainer, but it is hoped that Youth Leaders will be involved as trainers.  Young people who have already completed Cadet Trainer 2 or 3 may also assist support staff.

The course has been designed to run as a residential weekend event, but may be held over 3 days, with a minimum of six participants.   A formal skill test 9 assessment, by a TDA, will be required at a later date either in the participants unit or by bringing course members back together.  This skill test can be used as portfolio evidence.
