Last weekend two cadets from the squadron attended a wing virtual method of instruction (MOI) Course. This course was for those cadets who wish to teach effectively within the RAFAC and have already completed the presentation skills module. Some of the key elements taught were:  The Roles and Qualities of an Instructor Identifying Participants Needs Aims and Objectives (and SMART Objectives) Planning and Preparing Lessons The 4 Main Learning Styles The Use of Training Aids Delivering Lessons Assessing Learning Evaluating Lessons  After successfully completing the training course and to now gain their lanyards, the cadets will plan and deliver two lessons at the squadron, on a topic of their choice. Once they have completed this and are ready, they will have a member of the wing training team complete their final assessed lesson.  Thank you to the Warwickshire and Birmingham Wing Training team for delivering the MOI course and well done to the cadets for engaging really well with the course. ...

To try and make Christmas a touch more special for 2020 the Squadron had designed, printed and sent out its own personal Christmas card to all Cadets and members of the squadron, along with the organisations and individuals who have provided support to the squadron over the last year.  The front of the card depicts some of the activities undertaken by the squadron shortly before lockdown including a Chinook AEF flight, AEF, drill, rock climbing, road marching, leadership courses, remembrance and air rifle shooting. Just some of the activities that the Cadets have to look forward to in, hopefully, the near future.  Inside is a blessing provided by the squadrons’ chaplain and a message of good will to all from the staff. As soon as they arrived the staff got together and signed and posted over 60 cards.  Thanks to @samjonesillustration for his design work and meeting our demanding requirements. And finally, of course, Merry Christmas! ...

Last weekend two cadets from the Squadron attended a Virtual Wing Basic (Bronze) Leadership Course. This course, along with recent others, would have usually happened face to face but due to current circumstances it was delivered virtually for the first time. The four lessons, delivered over the day covered: Introducing Leadership Understanding Leadership Implementing Leadership Delivering Leadership Cadets were getting involved in the conversations and discussion, which was pleasing to see, especially since it's tough to engage everybody online. Next year the cadets will receive the opportunity to complete the practical assessment and if successful receive their bronze leadership award. Thank you to the Warwickshire and Birmingham Wing Training team for delivering the course and well done to the Cadets for engaging with the course. ...
