Senior Executives' Partners Seminar - SEPS
RAF - The seminar is specifically designed for the partners of newly appointed stn and unit cdrs and these partners will have priority over other applicants. Partners of flying sqn cdrs and wg cdrs in command appointments would also find the seminar very valuable and may attend if places are available.
The aim of the SEPS is "to help prepare the partners of senior executives, either just before or soon after they arrive on stations, for some aspects of station life in which they are likely to have the opportunity to become directly involved."
