SUmmer Reflections

Before the residential, we'd like you to spend 30 minutes on the following:

1. Read your learning partner's summer reflection. You and your partner will discuss them on the first morning walk, in the grounds of Sandhurst. Download your own Discussion Group's reflections to get your partner's reflection.

2. Read all 12 of the reflections of another Discussion Group - your Discussion Group will nominate one person to hear from, and we'll invite six Fellows based on said nominations to address the whole cohort during the residential. This has been a highlight of previous programmes.

We have paired up each of the Discussion Groups for no.2 so please make sure you read your specified Discussion Group reflections. The pairs are clearly marked on the Summer Reflections page.

Summer Reflections will be available to download shortly.
