1151 Squadron is currently without a Deputy Officer Commanding and are currently looking for a promising individual to fulfill the role.
Other the the Officer Commanding, 1151 currently doesn't have any Adult Non-Commissioned Officers on squadron, but recruitment, development and training is an on-going process. Cadets can progress through the ranks to become an Adult NCO's or new adult volunteers aged over 20 can join the ATC as a Civilian Instructor and then if they wish, they can progress into the role.
The majority of the staff on Squadron consists of Civilian Instructors (CIs). CIs help organise and run a variety of activities, whether these are conducted on or off the Squadron. The CIs at 1151 (Wallsend) are vital in the nightly running of the Squadron and delivery of training to the cadets.
