How state-funded schools can set up or join a cadet unit.
The Cadet Expansion Programme was established in 2012 to increase the number of schools with cadet units to 500 by March 2020.
This figure was derived through provision of additional LIBOR funding and the capacity of the cadet organisations to support new schools in the various geographical areas.
The maximum number of schools that can be supported has now been reached.
