Join the Combined Cadet Force (CCF) at Llandarcy Academy of Sport

The CCF provides further outstanding opportunities for student enrichment at the College


What is the CCF?

The Combined Cadet Force (CCF) offers college students a broad range of challenging, exciting, adventurous and educational activities. The aim is to develop skills in personal responsibility, leadership, and self-discipline.

The CCF is an educational partnership between the College and the Ministry of Defence, and a CCF may include Royal Navy, Royal Marines, and Army or Royal Air Force sections.

How can the CCF benefit students?

As part of the CCF, students across the will college volunteer, regardless of what course they study. They will attend CCF sessions on a Wednesday afternoon at Llandarcy Academy of Sport, as well as weekend camps and a summer camp for at least one week during the academic year. There is little or no cost to students.

Students will follow the CCF syllabus which includes topics such as map reading, military core skills such as weapon handling and shooting, foot drill (marching) and personal presentation skills, community engagement (Remembrance Sunday) and outdoor activities such as orienteering, kayaking, mountain biking and much more.

In addition to their course of study, the CCF aims to create well-rounded young people who are not only motivated but ready for the world of work with skills tailored to all types of employers.
