Employer Recognition Scheme

The Combined Cadet Force Association are proud to be working with the Defence Relationship Management Scheme which supports employers on their journey within the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) as companies can become bronze, silver and gold recognised employers.

The CCFA are a proud supporter of the Combined Cadet Force, supporting contingents of cadets within schools, funding a variety of different activities and programmes including, first aid, sport and the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme by providing grants to cadets and adult volunteers to support in these areas and providing grants to cadets and volunteers for expeditions, equipment, qualifications and more.

There are currently 51,400+ cadets within the CCF and over 4,100+ adult volunteers, keeping the units running and providing great support, guidance and training to the cadets.
