Combined Cadet Force

Cadets take part in marksmanship skills training

Brooke Weston Academy students who are part of the Brooke Weston Trust Combined Cadet Force (CCF), have been taking part in marksmanship training and shooting practice in preparation for competing against cadets at Corby Business Academy.

The first-year cadets have been learning how to use the BSA Scorpion Cadet Air Rifle and, as well as learning about the major parts of this rifle, they have also been taught how to handle and fire it safely.

The second-year cadets have completed revision training sessions on using this rifle and will compete separately in a competition against each other.

CCF Sergeant Paul Twamley said, ‘There is a lot of skill and technique required in using a rifle and the cadets have been very focussed during training and are looking forward to putting their skills to the test when they compete at CBA.’
