Objectives

The organisation works to give young people the best possible head start in life through nautical adventure and fun.  Governed by the Marine Society and Sea Cadets (MSSC) under a Memorandum of Understanding with the Royal Navy, we provide education and training on a nautical theme. Creating opportunities for them to improve their personal development and leadership skills and community involvement, opportunities that in most cases would be economically unattainable.

Our young people are predominantly drawn from disadvantaged city wards in Birmingham, our teachings promote the core values of honesty and integrity, respect, self-discipline, commitment and loyalty.

Activities

We do this through a combination of classroom based learning of the Sea Cadet Training Programme Modules – Adventure Training; Community Activities; Corps Knowledge; Values; Drill; First Aid; Health & Safety; Leadership and Teamwork; Meteorology; Recreational Physical Training; Seamanship; Waterborne;  and outdoor training and activities known as specialisations and proficiencies.

The full experience develops the next generation of young people preparing them for the future as they rise through the ranks following continuous development.  They learn to work as part of a team and take responsibility for their own learning and development as well as supporting the development of younger cadets, community activities and fundraising.
