Action Learning Sets 

Action learning is a powerful action-oriented, problem solving tool, as well as a key approach to individual, team and organisation development. It is based on the principle that people learn best from what they are doing and that they have an unlimited capacity to learn from experience but a limited capacity to learn from being taught.

It is a process of learning and reflection, supported by a small group or ‘set’ of people with the intention of moving issues forward. Individuals learn with and from each other by working on their own particular situations and reflecting on their experience.  

Action Learning Sets will begin in March 2017
