Combined Cadet Force (CCF)

The Combined Cadet Force Association (CCFA) is a national charity dedicated to promoting the ideals and activities of the Combined Cadet Force. CCF contingents exist in schools around the UK, and are open to pupils at that school aged 12 to 18 years, offering a range of challenging, exciting, adventurous and educational activities. CCF give young people the life skills and self-confidence to take charge of their lives so they can reach their full potential at school and beyond, including in employment. Each CCF is formed of sections from one or more of the Royal Navy, Royal Marines, Army or the Royal Air Force. Over 400 schools in the UK already have a CCF contingent, and the CCF is growing. Our aim is to enable the development of personal responsibility, leadership and self-discipline. Each CCF is an educational partnership between the school and the Ministry of Defence.
