Youth Development Programme

For some who may not have the chance to shine in an academic environment, Sea Cadets gives them the opportunity to participate in adventurous activities and develop new skills – allowing them to redefine themselves as learners and achievers.

With tremendous adventure and practical training across the country, the Sea Cadets can help guide young people away from anti-social behaviour and instead open access to qualifications, employment and a positive future.

A nautical focus underpins all Sea Cadet activities and is embedded within the organisation and based on the customs and traditions of the Royal Navy. Their core ethos remains the same as when they were founded in 1856 – tremendous adventure and practical training across the country – but they are constantly evolving. With a dedicated focus on their development and providing better post-16 destinations, they can help guide young people away from risky and problem behaviours, and instead open access to qualifications, employment and a positive future.
