Recipient Org: Description The Air Training Corps is a voluntary uniformed youth organisation which is supported, in part, by the Royal Air Force. It provides the opportunity to learn valuable skills, receive training and gain personal development for young men and women aged 12 (including school year 8) to 20. When cadets reach 17.5 they have a DBS check and then undertake a safeguarding course. On completion they become a staff cadet until they are 20. 1254 Squadron is one of nearly 1,000 Air Cadet units across the UK. Originally set-up in 1941 the Air Training Corps was primarily a recruiting ground for the Royal Air Force. However, today this is no longer the case. The organisation as a whole has 3 main aims as follows:_x000D_ • Promote and encourage a practical interest in aviation and the Royal Air Force among young people._x000D_ • Provide training which will be useful in the Services and in civilian life._x000D_ • Encourage the spirit of adventure and develop qualities of leadership and good citizenship._x000D_ The squadron provides members with many activities including flying, shooting, sports, camping, and support to gain a Duke of Edinburgh award. Core training also includes recognised BTEC qualifications in aviation and leadership. The Squadron has been in Godalming since March of 1941 and has close ties with the local community. It currently has 31 cadets from Godalming and the surrounding villages and meets on a Tuesday and Thursday evenings in Hallam Road, Godalming throughout the year. In the very near future, 1254 Squadron will be recruiting another 15 new recruits, also resident in the Borough of Waverley. 1254 Squadron has a Management Committee of 4 people and is supported by 5 volunteers.
