Cadet force adult volunteer wins education award


A cadet force adult volunteer who has helped more than 30 cadets to achieve BTEC qualifications in the last year has received a top award.

Yorkshire North and West Army Cadet Force’s Sergeant Mary Hood was awarded a certificate recognising her outstanding contribution to CVQO, the charity that offers the vocational qualifications.

Boosting their prospects

“The qualifications are a great way for cadets to boost their personal statements and curriculum vitaes and help improve their employment applications,” said Mary, who works with cadets in E Company.

She received her certificate from chair of CVQO’s board of trustees, The Right Hon The Lord Lingfield, at a prestigious ceremony at Sandhurst.
