|Serial||Item||Costs( 1 ) (£)|
|Start up( 2)||Annual( 3)|
|(1 )Costs are based on a 120 cadet contingent (the average size of a state school contingent).|
(2 )Start-up costs are dependent on existing facilities and resources within a school. The costs shown are therefore a combination of both the direct scaled costs for a 120 cadet contingent and average spend for the six new contingents.
(3 )Annual costs relate to a relatively stable contingent. If there is a high turnover of cadet force adult volunteers (the cadet instructors) or cadets costs will increase.
(4 )Travel and subsistence costs are those refunded to adult volunteers who attend camps and courses.
(5 )Initial transport cost is to procure a dedicated minibus with annual running costs, maintenance and insurance thereafter.
(6 )Cost of buildings includes storerooms and office space. Also included are the additional costs to the national infrastructure, where known, such as the Cadet Training Centre and the Cadet Adventurous Training Centre.
(7 )Annual CCF Grant is a per capita grant from the MOD to cover miscellaneous contingent costs such as office equipment, telephones and stationery.
Not shown are additional costs of cadet training teams, training infrastructure, service transport when used or support from regular units which are mainly shared resources used by all cadet force units.
