Cadet organisations, including the Army Cadet Force, play an important part in the opportunities available to young people to develop skills and experiences alongside their education. The Ministry of Defence is pleased to support them and does so with over £150 million of funding each year. 100 new cadet units were established under the Cadet Expansion Programme in english schools during the last Parliament; along with a target to reach 500 cadet units in schools by 2020.
