The ICSC(L)16B cohort was particularly remarkable as they continued their studies remotely while many were also deployed supporting the government response to COVID-19. During the ceremony, CGS presented prizes to seven students for all aspects of the course.
The Intermediate Command and Staff Course (Land) (ICSC(L)) is a post-graduate course which equips officers of the Army and Royal Marines, both British and international, with the knowledge, skills and attitudes required for sub unit command and staff appointments up to the rank of lieutenant colonel. It allows officers to step outside their professional specialisations, to broaden their leadership and management skills, and to analyse key Defence issues at the higher tactical level and in joint force environments.
