Sea Cadets

Copley Academy opened a Sea Cadet unit in September 2014. Pupils aged 12 and 18 meet every Wednesday for two hours to take part in Sea Cadet activities delivered by volunteers from Tameside Sea Cadets Unit. Their two hour sessions follow the standard Sea Cadet training programme which involves seamanship skills such as rope work and navigation, drill and ceremonial skills, first aid and engineering. The cadets also have the opportunity to attend Tameside Sea Cadets Unit where they do water-based activities including sailing, rowing and power-boating. Cadets gain accredited qualifications in these skills from organisations including Royal Yachting Association and can also pursue a Duke of Edinburgh Award from the age of 14.

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.
