In The Know: Opportunities for Young People to Improve their CVs
The competitive nature of the workplace of today, makes it imperative for young people to improve their chances of getting employed, as early as possible. With that in mind, we have put together some fun and educational activities for youngsters to engage in to improve their CVs or employment prospects:
Royal Airforce Cadets: This involves flying, target shooting, sports and adventure training. This opportunity is offered to young people between the ages of 13 and 17. Some squadrons may recruit throughout the year and do welcome visits twice a week during their Parade Nights. They also give the option of showing video of Air Cadet activities and respond to any questions parents or guardians may have. Read more about it here.
