The aim of the group is to provide information relating to the process of candidating and also to provide support through what can be a challenging year.

In each session we review where candidates are up to in terms of the process, especially as this changes during the course of the year. We also briefly share what we have been reading, specifically the recommended books or other things which we think others may find helpful. We refer frequently to the Candidating material and resources and, certainly in the earlier sessions to the requirements of CPD. In each session there is time for questions and discussion which means that sometimes those questions take priority over the set programme.
