dbo:abstract
  • The Combined Cadet Force (CCF) is a youth organisation in the United Kingdom, sponsored by the Ministry of Defence (MOD), which operates in schools, and normally includes Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force sections. Its aim is to "provide a disciplined organisation in a school so that pupils may develop powers of leadership by means of training to promote the qualities of responsibility, self reliance, resourcefulness, endurance and perseverance". One of its objectives is "to encourage those who have an interest in the services to become Officers of the Regular or Reserve Forces", and a significant number of British military officers have had experience in the CCF. Before 1948, cadet forces in schools existed as the junior division of the Officers' Training Corps framework, but in 1948 Combined Cadet Force was formed covering cadets affiliated to all three services. As of 2019, there were 42,720 cadets and 3,370 Adult Volunteers. The MOD provides approximately £28M per year of funding to the CCF. Although sponsored by the Ministry of Defence, the CCF is not part of the British Armed Forces or Reserve Forces, as such, cadets are not subject to military 'call up'. Some cadets do, however, go on to enlist in the armed forces later in life, and many of the organisation's leaders have been cadets or have a military background. (en)
  • Die Combined Cadet Force (CCF) ist eine 1948 gegründete Jugendorganisation in Großbritannien, die vom dortigen Verteidigungsministerium unterstützt wird. Ziel ist, durch eine disziplinierte Organisation in der Schule den Schülern Führungsqualitäten beizubringen, und durch Training die Vorteile von Verantwortungsfähigkeit, Eigenständigkeit, Einfallsreichtum, Ausdauer und Beharrlichkeit aufzuzeigen. Das Programm ist aber keine Voraussetzung für und dient nicht zur Rekrutierung von zukünftigen Soldaten. Es wird an vielen Privatschulen im Vereinigten Königreich als Zusatzangebot angeboten. Die Kadetten tragen normalerweise eine Uniform in Tarnfarben, vergleichbar mit der der offiziellen Streitkräfte. Es gibt Unterteilungen nach Teilstreitkräften: * CCF RAF für die Royal Air Force * CCF Army für die British Army * CCF Royal Navy Royal Marines für die Royal Navy und die Royal Marines (de)
