Grand Prior Award
At each stage of the Cadet programme you will
be awarded a certificate and a badge to wear on your Cadet
The Membership Award is the
first step a Cadet takes towards joining St John Ambulance and
gives an understanding and a taste of what being a Cadet is all
about, before you fully join the Cadet
unit. Badgers joining Cadets will already
have this through their Follow-Me Badger
After completing eight Cadet subjects you
receive your bronze award, a further eight subjects your silver
award, four additional subjects your gold award, and four more to
receive your Grand Prior Award.
Open to all
Each subject in the Grand Prior Award scheme
is also pitched at three levels of attainment so that everyone can
participate at their own level.
