Virtural Cadet Training Centre - Summer 2020

Cadets are being given the opprotunity to participate in a Virtural Cadet Training Centre for the Summer of 2020.  See the information below for registration information and resources.  

If you have any questions or need more information, please call/text the squadron at 613-921-7047.

This Virtural Cadet Training Centre is optional and voluntary, but we are encouraging all of our cadets to take advantage of this wonderful opprotunity.  There are limited spaces available, so be sure to get registered as soon as it is open.

Members of our cadet corps and squadrons,

As we move forward modernizing the current Cadet Program, staff from across the country have been formulating new ways to deliver engaging training for cadets and adult leaders in a virtual environment.

Exploring virtual training delivery during the COVID-19 pandemic has allowed the Cadet Program to move forward in new ways, taking advantage of technology. From virtual seminars to health and fitness challenges, cadets are encouraged to remain active and engaged as we move into the summer period.

This summer three Virtual Cadet Training Centres will help deliver exciting challenges and activities for cadets. Throughout the summer they will offer different opportunities for cadets to further develop both personal and cadet skills in a new, virtual setting.

Cadets will have the opportunities to participate in flexible, voluntary training opportunities either independently at their own pace or in facilitated sessions. This summer will be about engagement and flexibility while continue to focus on the cadet experience.

5-weeks of summer training activities

Cadets will be able to take five weeks of distance learning activities during the summer, for about two to three hours per week. The choice of the 22 activities is the same as those offered on the "Cadet Activities" portal on the Extranet and posted on the Cadet Learning / Apprentissage des cadets Facebook page, and detailed in the Virtual CTC course Schedule.

Registration for these activities will open on Monday, 29 June at 1100hrs EST and will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. In order for cadets to register for these activities, Cadets will need to send an email to their Regional Cadet Support Unit (RCSU) with the following information:

· Last Name

· First Name

· Corps / Squadron Number

· Corps / Squadron element

· Name of the activity you wish to register for.

· Dates of serial you wish to register for.

· The language you would like the activity delivered in;

· Phone number (will be use as a second factor authentication for your online account)

· An email address that the cadet has access to; and

· Instrument selection for cadets registering for the music course

Cadets must send an email to the following address:

· RCSU Central (Ontario, except the Ottawa Valley) RCSUCentral@Cadets.gc.ca

Cadets' email must be sent from their personal email address or an email that they can access. A parent email, that the cadet cannot access, should not be used.

Cadets will be contacted once they are loaded on an activity, and provided instructions on how to log in to the learning tools required to participate in the activity.

Additional Tools and Resources

Here are the new resources and tools available to take advantage of these new opportunities:

Extranet portal - Cadet Activities

You will find here a list of activities to suggest to your cadets grouped under several themes: healthy living, financial awareness, construction activities, citizenship, cyber & media awareness and Do-It-Yourself activities (DIY). These are all individual activities and are self-paced.

Extranet portal - Leading Activities

This portal is intended for staff cadets and offers leadership and teaching development activities.

https://portal-portail.cadets.gc.ca/en/LeaderActivities/Pages/default.aspx

Facebook Page - Cadet Learning / Cadet Learning

This Facebook page is designed to share the latest news on the activities available on extranet and maximize participation. On this page, surveys are also posted online to find out what cadets think about their favourite activities. This page is bilingual.

Throughout the summer, the page will follow cadet summer training as a CTC page would.

The National Cadet and Junior Canadian Rangers Support Group takes pride in delivering high-quality training and experiences where youth lead youth, and this summer is no different –staff cadets and adult leaders selected for summer training will continue to work at delivering unique and challenging online experiences for our Cadets, in a new virtual environment. These same staff will be responsible for facilitating and following up with cadets during their training.

We thank you, once again, for your patience, resilience and understanding in these unprecedented times.
