I added this onto the pre-course reading list for our prospective Y1 trainees. This is great as it introduces them to the CCF and there are not many books out there at the moment that does this as the CCF is quite new.

Useful, student-friendly book that prompts students to think more widely about the how, what and why of professional development.
