CVQO Head Office Staff go to camp!
Today a dozen staff members from CVQO Head Office visited the Royal Marines Cadets camp at Brunswick Barracks in Pirbright. They spent the day watching the cadet activities and were particularly impressed with the clay pigeon shooting.
There were over 140 cadets in residence and the Eastbourne group generously agreed to be photographed with us (above).
The CVQO group really enjoyed the day and have all said how great it is to see the cadets taking part in the camp activities.
CVQO’s ILM Leadership Course - details for 2014
CVQO’s hugely successful ILM Level 3 Leadership Course for senior cadets will run again this October
The challenging, week-long residential course will run between 27 – 31 October, at the headquarters of CVQO’s adventurous and leadership training partner, Outposts, in the Quantock Hills in Somerset.
Cadets will earn an internationally recognised Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) Level 3 Award in Leadership and Management.
As with the majority of CVQO’s portfolio of awards, the criteria needed to complete the CVQO-led ILM Level 3 qualification are covered by practical activities already part of the regular cadet activities.
To achieve the ILM Level 3, all cadets will need to do is successfully complete the course and the workbook.

Duke of Westminster Award 2014 - Cadets Return
They’d been travelling for hours and happy to be home, however,it was hard for them to say goodbye to the group which has been so close knit since they left.
Still, they can always stay in touch via our Linkedin Group, CVQO Alumni and Friends.
The cadets will be home later today, but before they left South Africa, three gave their last thoughts on a fantastic three-week expedition. Eloise Robertson, Hardit Parmar and Dominic Murray spoke to Mike Chambers.
