The CVQO learner journey

I have seen first-hand the fantastic opportunities and experience that being a cadet can bring to young people.

“Skills such as teamwork, communication and leadership are vital, practical skills that are so valued by employers, whichever path you choose.

“CVQO are rightly recognising the skills and abilities of our cadet forces with qualifications that will help set them on their path to success.
