The first Sea Cadet unit was established in 1854 at Whitstable in Kent, created by communities wanting to give young people instruction on a naval theme. Traditionally old seafarers provided training while local businessmen funded the Unit Headquarters.
The tradition of community - based Sea Cadet Units continues today with 400 across the UK each with charitable status enabling them to raise funds to meet their running costs. All Units are members of the Sea Cadet Corps and are governed by the national charity MSSC - the Marine Society & Sea Cadets.
Clacton Sea Cadets Unit is run entirely by volunteers and we would like to recruit non-uniformed instructors to help train our cadets. You will be asked to take part in some training (Induction, Safeguarding, First Aid) to keep cadets safe.
