Air and Defence College students to graduate as Industrial Cadets

February 27 2019

Lincoln College’s Air & Defence College (ADC) has adopted the Gold Standard Industrial Cadet scheme to prepare students for careers in the RAF and aerospace Industries.

The scheme will also be adopted by the two other ADC member colleges, New College Stamford and College of West Anglia.
Inspired by His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, the scheme is designed to immerse students in industry with a focus on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
Run by educational charity EDT, the Industrial Cadet scheme is designed to recognise significant development of skills, knowledge and understanding of the industry students are preparing to enter.
Students will take part in:
·         Extensive high quality work experience
·         Significant company and sector research
·         Be mentored by industry employees
·         Take part in practical problem solving challenges set by industry
·         Deliver presentations and take part in an evaluation to gain their accreditation.

Learning and Skills Lead for the Air & Defence College, Ross Tarnowski, said the scheme would add significant value to the students and their career prospects.
“This nationally recognised accreditation builds on the work we are already doing to prepare young people for careers in the RAF and wider aerospace industry,” he said.
“The accreditation is recognised nationally by major employers in the sector and it will help them to transition seamlessly into the world of work.
“They will gain a meaningful insight into the industry; develop their employability skills, understand the career pathways available to them and hopefully have higher aspirations as a result.”
All current and future Air & Defence College students will graduate as Industrial Cadets as part of the first year of their study programmes.
