TWO sea cadets from the Hastings unit have achieved qualifications through volunteering for the corps.

Petty Officer Paul Huggett and Leading Cadet Sharna Whitlock gained the Btec Level 2 Diploma in Public Services at Distinction * and Pass grades respectively.

Lt (SCC) Alison Brennan-Wright, commanding officer of TS Hastings Sea Cadets, said: “This really is a very big well done and the first to achieve these results for TS Hastings SCC. The achievement is a result of their hard work and dedication to the course over a very wide spectrum of learning.

“I would like to thank both of them for all their efforts and continued success in their learning and career progress.”

Sea Cadets is the UK’s largest maritime youth charity, with 9,000 volunteers support 14,000 young people, aged between 10 and 18, in 400 towns across the UK. Through nautical adventure they learn vital life skills like leadership, communication and team working and can earn extra qualifications.
