ACFA LIBOR grant enhances learning for 23 Norfolk detachments

19.11.2019

The Army Cadet Force Association (ACFA) granted over £11,000 to Norfolk Army Cadet Force (ACF) in February 2019 for upgrades to each detachment’s ICT equipment. 

Major Bob Gibbs, CEO of Norfolk ACF said:”Norfolk ACF was able to buy each of its 23 detachments some much needed ICT equipment in order to deliver the holistic classroom based APC syllabus.”

Troop Commander of the Harleston detachment, Captain Sam Carter, said: “The portable screen and projector enables us to link up our Troop laptop to show PowerPoints, videos, photographs and websites to the Cadets on a large scale.We can set up in various different locations with the portable screen.”

Sam added: “The use of a visualiser has added another dynamic to teaching APC lessons. The ability to show on the screen a smaller sheet or fine detail skill without having bodies crowded around has made teaching subjects like Navigation much easier. Teaching measuring distance or grid bearing with a real compass now becomes so easy when using the visualiser.”

Lara Henwood, the ACFA Operations and Grants Officer, is currently accepting applications from the Army Cadet Force counties to help fund activities that will further enhance the Cadet Experience. She can advise & guide counties through the process of applying for an ACFA grant. anyone interested in finding out more should contact her at projects@armycadets.com
