Jessica Taylor became eligible for a BTEC Level 1 qualification through her unit, Sefton Sea Cadets. She shared some thoughts with us on how this has impacted her and helped shape her future plans.
"The BTEC Level 1 qualification has helped me to gain knowledge about just how valuable what we learn in cadets is. It has given me confidence in my unit and a real sense of achievement.
"Additionally, my school head teacher has recognised my achievement through a celebration event at school.
"Looking to the future, I want to continue in full time education, and in cadets to become a qualified electrical engineer. CVQO has given me and my cadet friends a great opportunity to showcase how valuable our time in cadets is, thank you!"
