Leadership exercise at 966

On Thursday 7th April cadets took part in several exercises in which they had to complete a task using their training and ingenuity. The cadets were split into 2 groups, each having one cadet appointed as team leader who was given the chance to show and improve his/her leadership ability. Cpl Payne said “It was a great success and I was extremely pleased at some of the potential Corporals.”

The exercises that the cadets had to complete involved using trust, precision, physical abilities and mental abilities.  In one of the exercises cadets had to defuse a bomb in 15 minutes whilst reading a coded message, telling them which wire to cut. Another exercise involved guiding a team member around an obstacle course to collect vital software. This was done with 2 teams which meant cadets had to battle their nerves to complete the task before the other team. All the cadets agreed that they had thoroughly enjoyed themselves and couldn’t wait for the next set of exercises.
