2461 (Sawston) Squadron RAF Air Cadets

2461 (Sawston) Squadron is the Air Cadet Squadron based at the Imperial War Museum in Duxford

Thursday 17 January 2013


Air Cadets from 2461 (Sawston) Squadron have added a new qualification to their CV by completing the Health and Safety Entry Level Award in association with the British Safety Council.

The Squadron has been recognised by the Air Cadet Organisation for its commitment to the education of young people about health and safety in the workplace following training delivered by qualified Squadron staff.  The content of the training includes; hazards, safety signs, personal protective equipment, fire safety and staying safe in general.

The training saw cadets complete a workbook and various supporting evidence such as diagrams and their own innovative safety signs.  The qualification will help when the cadets start looking for a job and did not cost them a penny to gain!

Cadet Alex Baker said “This qualification was really fun to gain; the learning was interactive and made me think about health and safety in the environment I am in.”

Flying Officer Chris Cox added “This qualification is a fantastic opportunity for the cadets to gain a valuable qualification whilst undertaking activity alongside their friends.  The qualification demonstrates our commitment to both health and safety and the development of young people in and around the Sawston area.”

2461 (Sawston) Squadron meet on Monday and Thursday evenings at our headquarters on Hayfield Avenue.  For more information about joining as either a cadet or member of staff please contact 01223 834585 (Monday and Thursday Evenings) or email oc.2461@aircadets.org
