Each January staff and staff cadets from across the wing gather at RAF Halton to attend the annual Wing Training Day. This provides the opportunity to find out the latest changes on subjects such as the ‘Duke of Edinburgh’s Award’ and syllabus training. Staff also reflect back on the previous year and look ahead to ensure that the cadet experience is been delivered to the best of the ability of squadrons and wing staff within Thames Valley. This year’s training day saw a visit by Gp Capt Cole from RAF Brize Norton who provided an insight into the RAF as it currently stands and updates on RAF Brize Norton with the introduction of the Voyager fleet and upcoming arrival of the Atlas fleet.
With presentations from subject specialist’s staff from across the wing split into their sectors to discuss how in 2014 they can work together to better deliver activities to cadets and co-ordinate events for the year. With the recent changes to the ACO Gliding Sdn Ldr Mockeridge, OC 612 VGS also briefed the audience about the changes to the gliding and updates from 612 VGS.
The training day is open to all staff and all staff cadets from across the wing so if you was unable to attend this year’s check the wing calendar for the 2015 training day.
