Not for myself, i just curious, please enlighten me....

thanks

Most detachments recruit by word of mouth, our local ACIO send quite a few down.

Recruiting ideas, get your name about, local press etc, some dets go into schools, but that is entirely dependent on the head.

Collect for a local charity, give out business cards to passers by etc.

Not really anything to do with the headteacher, unless it is a CCF, which is established within a School/College.

It is entirely dependent on the headteacher as to who he lets into the school most are very supportive some are a little loony left, and think we are attempting to "train boy soldiers like they do in Angola" and yes that is a quote.

Think the key is to emphasize the non green things we do such as DofE, first aid quals, Btec etc.

And come on people can we rise above the usual insinuation that AI's in the cadet forces are a bunch of kiddy fiddlers, it aint big and it aint clever, and it is even less funny.
