Boys and girls from 12- 18 can join.
The Army Cadet Force actively wants its cadets to succeed. All cadets start by learning the basics before moving on to the ACF Star Cadet Awards - starting at one star and moving all the way through to four. Achieve that and cadets can be put forward for an assessment course to be recognised as a Master Cadet.
As cadets progress through each stage they'll learn more and more advanced techniques in all subjects. They'll also be given a training role where they can develop their own teaching techniques by teaching the younger or less experienced cadets in their detachment.
