Posted by Calé Reilly in Questions for the Candidates- Academy and mentoring
These questions are for anyone from any ticket.

1- There has been a lot of work happening in the academy over the last few months. Some of which has been discussed in command but most of which is happening within the academy staff and is only mentioned in the fleet reports. I’m delighted to see some of what we are trying to do is also priority for or part of your platforms. However only one person has come to ask me to update them for more detail on the current academy situation so can I ask, are you all aware of the work being done other than the command discussions?

2- While mentoring has appeared in the platform posts few of those running has actually commented on the current discussions in command on the mentoring programme changes we are suggesting. Do you have any opinions on these suggestions and are they different from your platform ideas?

3- Given that there has been more focus on creating a structured curriculum for cadets which links more closely to the syllabus and a new members course/ cadet course created that is in draft to be vetted right now which includes the creation of biographies and plans to include a biography template creation document to be used as a stand alone, with a mentor for a new player or part of discussions IC with the academy ship CNS for a cadet to add to this can you elaborate on how your platform will dovetail with this work or will you plan to replace it with something different, if so can you give some more detail on that?

4- There has been a lot of interest in adding courses to the catalogue we have currently, would you support this work some of which is already being done if elected?

5- How would you for see the academy working for all members at all levels of time and participation within the club not just new members or cadets.

Thank you all for your time


Hi Calé,

Dave and I are still writing up our splatform to share with everybody but of the four main points, that we so far have on the list, the Academy is definitely one of them. I’m going to need to educate myself more in regards to everything Academy related before I feel confident in answering your questions so I will be deferring to Dave’s insights and experience. I would love to sit down and have a conversation regarding your questions though and what feedback you have.
