Copley Cadets annual photo and also students from Almeira Spain, exchange visit to Tameside sea cadets.
Sea Cadets is a national youth charity working with 14,000 young people in 400 communities, 45% of which are in economically challenged areas. We know the power that key life skills and positive values can offer a young person seeking to make their way in a challenging adult environment.
We believe what we offer young people, nautical adventure and challenge in a positive environment makes a positive difference to their life chances.
The progressive training programme with a nautical focus based on personal development and a breadth of opportunities to learn new skills and gain accredited qualifications enables those we support to develop positive relationships and fosters a sense of belonging and identity.
In short the inspirational environment we can offer them, combined with the chance to challenge themselves both through physical activities and personal development opportunities, help build their sense of identity. We believe this will, in the long term, help to positively affect key areas that can later have an impact on their life chances, from attendance in school, improved post 16 destinations in employment and further education. As well as enhancing long term well-being, reducing risky behaviours and seeing an increased participation in communities.
