Professional Development Week

Experiential learning is the process of making meaning from direct experience, and this week is dedicated to active experimentation and reflective observation.

The main event is held off campus and takes students away from a typical working or study environment. Over the course of this week you will participate in a range of practical activities and challenging ‘learning metaphors’ which are used as a starting point to discuss skill traits, individual development themes and to receive feedback from trained facilitators and cohort peers.

This event provides the opportunity to explore leadership styles, the ability to create followership, examine examples of effective communication in challenging team contexts and to develop deeper insight regarding mental toughness and resilience.

The time spent at Sandhurst Military Academy, during our Achieving Your Potential week, was both enjoyable and hugely inspiring. The experience developed my leadership and team building skills whilst emphasising the importance of self-awareness in leaders of today.
