The Air Training Corps is a nation wide, uniformed youth
organisation aimed at encouraging a practical interest in
aviation, adventure and sport. The ATC provides training,
which will be useful in any walk of life. Many facilities
are provided by the Royal Air Force, however, there is no
pressure on any cadet to join the service. Those who do join
the RAF or for that matter the Army or Navy as many of our
squadron's cadets have done, have found that their time in
the ATC has given them a distinct advantage. In fact most
employers, whether service or civilian, recognise the value
of time spent in the ATC.
The ATC is geographically organised into six Regions, which
are further subdivided into thirty-six Wings. 121 (Nuneaton)
Sqn. is within the Central and East Region and is part of
the Warwickshire and Birmingham Wing.
Squadrons are run by Officers who are commissioned in the
Training Branch of the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve (RAFVR(T)).
They are assisted by Adult Warrant Officers and Senior Non Commissioned Officers of the ATC and
Civilian Instructors (CI's).
Each squadron also has a civilian committee, often made up
of leading members of the local community, which is dedicated
to supporting the squadron and helps with fundraising initiatives.
Having said that the squadrons are run by the adult staff,
it must not be forgotten that cadet Non Commissioned Officers
(NCO's), Corporal, Sergeant, Flight Sergeant and Cadet Warrant
Officers are also expected to actively assist the staff and
contribute to the smooth running of their units.
