Engagement Day - Driffield Cadet Training Centre

8th August 2024
2:00pm - 6:00pm
Driffield Cadet Training Centre

Engagement Day at the Driffield Cadet Training Centre on the 8th of August 2024, commencing at 14:00 and concluding at 18:00, with the culminating event being a military beating retreat performed by our Regimental Band.  

We believe that understanding the Army Cadet Force (ACF) and its significance to society is paramount for senior leaders in the UK. The ACF plays a pivotal role in nurturing the next generation of leaders, instilling discipline, teamwork, resilience, and leadership skills in our cadets. These qualities are not only essential within the military context but also highly sought after in the civilian workplace.

During the Engagement Day, you will have the opportunity to:   

  • Observe Demonstrations: Witness live demonstrations showcasing the diverse training activities undertaken by our cadets and adult volunteers, ranging from vocational stills to skills that add stability and resilience to our Country.
  • Interact with Participants: Engage in conversations with our cadets and adult volunteers to gain insights into their personal experiences, challenges, and achievements within the ACF. You may even find that some of these individuals are part of your organisation or are members of your community.
  • Explore Transferable Skills: Gain a deeper understanding of how the skills and values instilled through ACF training can be effectively transferred into various societal and workplace settings, contributing to the professional growth and success of individuals, including those within your organization or community. 
  • Experience the Regimental Band: Conclude the day with a stirring military beating retreat performed by our regimental band, showcasing the rich heritage and tradition of the ACF. 

We firmly believe that your presence at this event will not only enrich your understanding of the ACF but also highlight the tangible benefits it offers to both individuals and society at large. By investing in the development of our cadets, we are shaping future leaders who possess the resilience, adaptability, and determination to excel in any endeavor they pursue, whether within your organization, your community, or beyond.
