Cadet Sergeant (Cdt Sgt) is the rank directly above Cadet Corporal and is selected by the squadron commander based on merit, usually with the agreement of their Wing Staff Officer, and usually only once a cadet has passed their Senior Cadet examination. In some cases the decision process is instigated by an application from the cadet. It is the lowest senior non-commissioned officer (SNCO) rank, and will usually bring with it substantially more responsibility around the squadron. The role of the Senior NCO is described in more detail in ACP 48.
