Since July 2015, Wrenn School has extended their educational opportunities to both its members and the young people within the community through the work of the Sea Cadets.
Across the UK there are thousands of young people involved in Sea Cadet activities – learning new skills that will give them a head start in life. In fact, we work with 14,000 Sea Cadets aged between 10 and 18 – and are the UK’s largest maritime youth charity, with a history dating back to 1856.
To increase these opportunities, we need volunteers who are happy to roll up their sleeves, get involved and make a huge positive difference to the lives of the young people we work with.
We have lots of roles to match your skills and in return we offer training to help you gain further skills, knowledge and qualifications that can mutually benefit the Sea Cadets and your school.
At present Wellingborough Sea Cadets have a training grant of £20,000 to support volunteers/teacher in their training; the list below identifies those that may be of interested to employees of the School:
- D1+E Minibus and Towing Endorsement training and assessment
