Welcome to Liverpool College's Combined Cadet Force
The Combined Cadet Force (CCF) is a tri-Service military cadet organisation based in schools and colleges throughout the UK. Although it is administered and funded by the Services it is a part of the National Youth Movement.
There are some 240 CCF contingents with 40,000 cadets. The role of any CCF is to help boys and girls to develop powers of leadership through training, which promotes qualities of responsibility, self-reliance, resourcefulness, endurance, perseverance and a sense of service to the community. Military training is also designed to demonstrate why defence forces are needed, how they function and to stimulate an interest in a career as an officer in the Services.
Additionally, the CCF contributes yet another challenging dimension to activities at Liverpool College.
The CCF Contingent at Liverpool College has been established for approaching 150 years and covers all three services. CCF members are drawn from boys and girls from year nine upwards. Membership is not compulsory but due to the enthusiasm of the senior cadets, it is the most popular organisation in the School with over 300 members.
The CCF receives assistance and support for its training programme from the Regular and Reserve Forces, but the bulk of adult support is provided by members of school staff who are responsible to head teachers for the conduct of cadet activities. CCF officers wear uniform but they are not part of the Armed Forces and carry no liability for service or compulsory training.
