What happens in the group?

For the new 2021/22 academic year, the group meets online on up to 10 days. The days are spread during the year – to ensure that group members get the full benefit of reflection and development time between Group days.

The year kicks of with the first group day on Saturday 4 September 2021 to set the scene and giving you a chance to really get to grips with what you want to achieve during the year. The group then meets for a further 9 Fridays and Saturdays throughout the academic year – ending in June 2022.

Beginning with a clear learning and development contract, members of the Exam Preparation Group will put together a personal development plan with the CTA exam as the end goal. To ensure you get the support you need on your journey to exam, each Exam Group day will be an agenda day set by the attendees. Activities can include:

  • Planning or writing sections of the case study
  • Mock exams
  • How to choose an exam tape
  • Understanding the exam process
  • Exam preparation and coaching
  • Personal process work
