At 2431 (Keighley) Squadron ATC we have the opportunity to undertake Fieldcraft Training.

Fieldcraft is the name given to the skill which enables a cadet to carry out a variety of military activities with maximum efficiency whilst moving across country by day and night. We practice many different techniques, such as;

  • Camouflage and Concealment
  • Cooking in the Field
  • Duties of a Sentry
  • Erecting Shelters
  • Hand Signals
  • Indication of Objects
  • Night Movement
  • Setting up Webbing
  • Stalking and Silent Movement 

Cadets can also move onto a more advanced Military Skills and Tactics Course. This is a prestigious "Junior Leaders" course, where many of these Students go on to become Officers in the Armed Forces.
