Junior NCO Courses

The Wing Junior NCO (JNCO) Course is the first level of NCO training. Whether you are already a Corporal, or seeking to become one, attending and successfully completing this course will develop your skills and confidence to set you on the right path to furthering your Cadet career.
The JNCO Course is fully residential, taking place over a weekend with accommodation and messing provided. There are normally two courses per year, so there is plenty of opportunity for you to gain a place.

What to Expect

You will arrive on the Friday evening, where a series of introductions enable everyone to get to know each other before breaking for the evening, giving you time to make sure your uniform is in top condition.
The Saturday consists of two phases of training – Drill, Dress & Discipline and Leadership & Communication. Throughout the day you will be instructed in all of the formal syllabus of Junior NCO training, as detailed in ACP 48 and ACTO 007, and the Bronze Air Cadet Leadership Syllabus. On the Saturday evening, you will take part in a group discussion, designed to challenge your thought processes and your ability to project your own opinion.
