I really liked putting into practice, during our practical hours, what we were learning in our intensives -putting it all together. The course had a very practical feel to it. I also liked that our trainers/facilitators/educators could all give examples through their own chaplaincy experiences to illustrate what we were being taught. It was good to be made to self-reflect – it’s an exercise I would usually avoid, but is beneficial – and of course necessary – for the role of a chaplain or pastoral carer. I felt part of a family within our cohort.
