Our Royal Marines CCF cadets were recently visited by members of the Royal Marines Visibility Team and undertook a series of Practical Leadership Tasks (PLTs), also known as Command Tasks and Initiative Exercises.

Each team was given a problem to solve and, after appointing a leader, they had a few minutes to devise a plan and then execute it. Penalties were incurred for breaking any set rules or for running out of time.

Each command task lasted about 30 minutes, with our cadets enjoying varying degrees of success. Afterwards, a discussion was held to assess the specific execution of the tasks and to explore what they might have done differently and what improvements might be needed.

Our CCF Contingent Commander, Major Steve King, said "PLTs involve communication, teamwork, lateral thinking, time-management, resourcefulness. Ultimately they develop leadership, which is at the very core of what the CCF is all about."
