Cadets Can Be a Great Way to Start Your Career

For our latest workshop we headed down the road to Hackney, and met the Hackney Police Cadets.

It was the first Tagmap workshop to be held inside an actual police station, which was a bit different!

We ran the usual format, using the Tagmap cards to provoke discussion, and filming one another with the i-flips to add to tagmap and create a network of young people’s voices.

The police cadets were a diverse mixed gender interfaith group which was interesting, and made a bit of a change.

The group talked a lot about careers and opportunities. They were all proud to be cadets and felt it was a really positive opportunity for them, it would help to secure them a good job in the future, either within the police or not.

Another key issue that arose amongst the cadets was a feeling that within the Hackney area there was a great divide amongst the rich and poor and that in some cases this divide encouraged crime. Knife crime was a topic that was also a big concern amongst them.
