As part of the CAPSTONE Afghanistan programme, International Section delivered a Strategic Leadership Programme (SLP) export course in Kabul over the period 3 - 6 Mar 2019.
It followed the Defence Academy’s UK Building Integrity (BI) team that delivered a Senior Leaders course the week prior. The programme remains a low-overhead, high impact defence education tool and the 20 participants also benefited from two external speakers that provided both a cultural perspective and regional colour.
The course also leveraged defence engagement benefits that included the attendance of the Ministers for Interior Affairs and Defence at the closing ceremony, as well as a dinner for a select group of Defence Attachés (DAs). The UK gains influence by running the course, particularly given its location at the British Embassy and ensures the UK MOD and the Defence Academy remain at the forefront of leadership education.
