Learn More About Our Cadets

Our volunteers aged 11-18 are known as Cadets. This page will give you all the information you need.

Our Cadets meet in communities across Wales to learn first aid and take part in the Grand Prior Programme.  

There’s so much more to being a Cadet than learning First aid.  

The programme includes lots of fun activities, subjects and projects that will help you to build your leadership, communication and training skills.  

Through the programme you’ll learn more about your local communities, interact with our adult volunteers and build your confidence. You’ll also make lots of friends and can take part in our Young Leader courses.  

You’ll earn certificates and badges for you to wear on your uniform for every subject you complete. To complete the programme you’ll need to complete 16 subjects. 

You’ll start with your Welcome Award where a young leader will induct you and teach you all about our organisation. Next is the Bronze award which you’ll get once you’ve completed four subjects. Then Silver, Gold and finally Grand Prior!

Whatever you enjoy doing and however much time you can commit, there’s a volunteer role for you.
