About this course

Approximately 8-10 years after leaving the Royal Military Academy Sandhurts, a world-reknowned leadership centre, all Army officers receive mid-career education at the Defence Academy of the United Kingdom. Throughout this period, each individual is encouraged to evaluate their own experiences and apply academically recognised theory to develop their approach to leadership, allowing them to create high functioning teams on they leave. The main leadership module is now open to limited civilian attendance. 

This unique opportunity allows you to study alongside your Army peers to share new approaches to common challenges, and develop the manner in which you understand the role of leadership in forming effective teams. 

Closing date for this course is 1 November 2019. Subsequent courses will be in mid September 2020 and January 2021.
