Rye Sea Cadets are celebrating after Petty Officer James Jury and Leading Cadet Edward Jury scooped top grades.

Both gained distinctions in the Level 2 BTEC First Diploma in Public Services. The diploma mixes theory and practical elements with an emphasis on leadership, teamwork, communications, problem solving and fitness. This internationally respected qualification is equivalent to 4 GCSEs at A*- C level.

The syllabus has been designed to improve valuable life skills. Cadets learn professional CV preparation, interviewing techniques, communication, first aid, adventure training and health and nutrition.

Rye Sea Cadets Officer in Charge CPO Steve Smith commented ”Presenting these awards have been a huge privilege and makes volunteering worth while. Both James and Edward have worked hard in their free time attending Rye Sea Cadets and working towards the Diploma.”

Rye Sea Cadets are now recruiting for new cadets, adult volunteers and supporters to join their small team of volunteers.

They meet on Monday and Friday evenings at their Rock Channel headquarters in Rye. Call 01797 224720. For more information.
