Activities - Challenge Award

Challenge Award

Training within the GVCAC is organised to provide a realistic challenge to our members. The Challenge Award provides directional training choices in up to 6 subjects.

Drill & Etiquette

Drill is a skill that encourages teamwork, discipline and co-operation, and in addition self-confidence, especially for those who continue to master taking a squad for drill. Etiquette is the good manners and customs we instil into the Cadets behaviour. This transfers well into all aspects of life, having respect for each other, their family and is often well received by prospective employers.


Aviation training is encouraged at all levels for both Cadets and Adult Leaders. Opportunities exist for both study and practical flight experience.

Service to the Community

All Cadets and Units are encouraged to undertake some form of community service. This includes helping in the local community, fundraising for charity and courses in First Aid. The aim is to make the Cadets think of others and what they can do to help as responsible members of the community.
