The International College for Officers and Centre for Spiritual Life Development
The idea for the formation of The International College for Officers has been around for more than 100 years. This idea worked itself out in several different forms and the programme was disrupted twice due to war and economic turmoil in the world. The programme was instituted at its location on Sydenham Hill in 1950. The name was changed to International College for Officers in 1954. Its role has been broadened to include aspects of spiritual life development that go beyond officers' attendance at the six-week ICO sessions. On April 16 2014 the first session at Sunbury Court - the new home for the ICO but, actually, a building purchased to house the International Training Institute, the forerunner of the ICO.
