The Army Cadet Force – Steph Woods

CIA Insurance General Blog

For our CIA Insurance general blog we like to get staff members to write up about what they are doing on their days off from work, weither it be track days or taking part in fundrasing for charities.

This time we have Steph Woods who works in the accounts department, she is an adult instructor for the Army Cadet Force. Here in her own words is what she has been up to recently with the cadets.

 The Army Cadet Force is a youth organisation funded by the MOD. I was a cadet for 5 years and then became an adult instructor. We aim to teach the 12-18 year olds about respect, self discipline, self confidence and more.

 We take part in events like Remembrance Parades and the Rugby christmas lights switch on. I’ve also taken part in the Malta Tatto in which we went to Malta for 4 days to play music for the Maltese Prime Minister and a large audience. We have also marched up the Mall to Buckingham Palace where we were invited into the garden and there i met Prince Charles and had a quick chat with him about camping.

 I’ve gained qualifications such as BTECs in Public Services and music

 It has given me so many great qualities and amazing friends, without the Army Cadet Force i wouldn’t be the person i am today.
