We do a really wide range of activities at Cadets, including learning at unit (local) level, area (regional) courses and national events. Some of the training we do is tri-corps (things the Sea Cadets, Army Cadets and Air Training Corps have in common) and some of it is specific to Sea Cadets. A lot, but by no means all, of what we learn is based on training used by the Royal New Zealand Navy.

Here is an overview of a few of the things we teach… You won’t learn this stuff at school!

This is a very important skill to have. Even if you’re not in a leadership role, understanding what makes a good leader will make you the best team member you can be.

In Cadets you will get the chance to learn how to lead a group and oversee tasks, and you’ll get to put these skills into practice all the time.

At school you get taught by teachers, at Cadets you learn to be one.

Instructional technique training teaches you how to train others, and you’ll do just that as you progress to becoming an instructor in the unit.

You could gain enough teaching experience to be confident speaking in front of any crowd.

There is not much formality in the life of a modern teenager, yet learning the traditions and ceremonies of your culture is a very important part of growing up.

At Cadets you’ll participate in minor ceremonial occasions as well as large events like ANZAC day.

This area of training is unique to Sea Cadets. You may have friends who are in sailing clubs or Scouts, but in Sea Cadets we take Seamanship far beyond merely learning to sail.

With a strong emphasis on water safety, our seamanship training also includes ropework to an advanced level and everything from dinghy rowing to sea time on a navy ship.
