The Defence Academy’s Joint Services Command and Staff College (JSCSC) invites ambitious substantive Band B2/Grade 7 and C1/SEO civil servants to an information open day to learn more about the ACSC and to help them decide whether they want to apply to attend in the future.
What would I learn as a civilian student?
Working alongside military students, you will be able to study full time within a professional and unique learning environment. The residential course, 46 weeks in duration, offers you an opportunity to develop your own analytical and interpersonal leadership skills. You will also gain a greater appreciation of the role and responsibilities by improving your understanding of command, leadership and management to progress, organise and develop MOD business in the right way, whilst exploiting the benefits of emerging technologies and best practice from industry.
How will undertaking ACSC help my civil service career?
Undertaking ACSC will provide you an opportunity to study alongside future military leaders from across the world. Successful completion will provide you with an educational tool kit to aid your career development and progression. Attendees who successfully complete the course will be awarded the CMI Level 7 Extended Diploma in Strategic Management and Leadership. There is also an option to study for the King’s College London – Master of Arts in Defence in Defence Studies.
