In the first three years of ordained ministry, clergy are involved in a programme of Initial Ministerial Education (IME). In some dioceses this is known as IME 4-7. 

The programme consists of ministry training days spread throughout the year. Curates in their deacon year generally meet separately from those in years two and three of the programme, but there are events during the year that all curates attend.
