Female cadets

The BDF initial enrolment of women has been received very well both Nationally and Internationally. It has its teething problems but nothing to affect the programme. The female cadets are finding it very tough hence the high attrition rate, but the male recruits have no reason to feel insecure - No one will get favours, more so with career progression guidelines in place.

Limited vacancies exist in the BDF for Female Officer Cadets. The following qualitative requirements shall apply to all candidates:
• Female Botswana Citizen
• Aged between 18 and 24
• Be physically and mentally fit
• Should have no adverse criminal record
• Candidates should be in possession of “Omang” or show valid proof of registration
• Candidates should have minimum qualification of a degree.

• Applicants from serving public officers must be routed through their Heads of Department for them to be considered.
• Applicants who are still pursuing their tertiary education will not be considered.
• Hand delivered applications will not be accepted.

Those interested should respond in writing enclosing certified copies of certificates and references and mail their correspondence in a plain sealed envelop to:
