Personal Awareness Course
April 6 @ 5:00 pm - April 8 @ 5:00 pm
This email constitutes the Calling Notice for a Personal Awareness Course scheduled for Fri 6 Apr 18 to Sun 8 Apr 18 at the Armed Forces Chaplaincy Centre (AFCC) Amport House.
The course commences at 1700 on the Friday and closes at 1330 on the Sunday (although timings can be flexible to accommodate travel).
There are 40 cadet places available and these are open to all enrolled cadets (qualified to First Class Cadet or above) over the age of 16 at the time of the course – regardless of rank, gender, race or creed – from all six ATC regions and RAF Sections of the CCF.
There are also places available for CFAVs (uniformed or non-uniformed – including chaplains).
Completed application forms (TG Form 6 or 7 for cadets and CFAVs respectively) along with TG Forms 21/22/23 as appropriate are to reach HQAC no later than COP Wed 28 Feb 18.
Only cadets and staff selected for the course will be contacted thereafter, and no later than 16 March 2018. Any cadets and staff who are unsuccessful will be placed on the reserve list should there be any cancellations.
Unsuccessful applications will NOT be carried over. However, cadets or CFAVs who have applied for but have not attended this or a previous course (for whatever reason) may re-apply for future courses.
Dress for the weekend is civilian clothing – uniform will not be required. As with any other course, wing headquarters staff (and CCF equivalents) are requested to assist with travel arrangements – provision of rail tickets, etc.
Despite being held at a chaplaincy centre, the course is not about religion – it is more concerned with ethics. While other courses provide skills and knowledge about “things” – flying, shooting, drill, leadership – the Personal Awareness Course is, arguably, the only course that is centred around the cadet themselves – helping them to explore and understand their feelings about the confusing – and often scary – world that they are growing up in. However the course – and indeed AFCC itself – is under threat. It is, therefore, imperative that we get as many applications as possible to ensure we achieve full allocation in order to avoid losing this course in future.
