Action Learning is a powerful process to help groups work on real problems and learn as individuals, teams and organisations. But it is a real skill to manage and facilitate these effectively.

This course will boost your confidence, sharpen your facilitation skills, and equip you to facilitate Action Learning Sets in a wide range of settings. It is practical and relevant to anyone who wants to add to their portfolio of tools and approaches.

Blended virtual course

This innovative course is currently delivered as a blended course with online learning, virtual workshop sessions and extensive online resources for the Action Learning Facilitator to use when managing Action Learning Sets.

The workshops sessions are very practical and experience orientated, with a full Action Learning Set demonstration by the trainer and many opportunities for the delegates to experience and practise the skills.

The online resources include both guidance and forms for the facilitator and document templates to hand out to Action Learning Set members.

The virtual workshop sessions are typically delivered as six 90 – 105-minute sessions over 3 half-days.

The total learning hours are approximately 14 hours.

At the end of the programme the participants will be able to download their own personalised certificate to demonstrate their new skills.

The course is also available as an in-person course over 2 or 3 days and can be customised based on the participants’ coaching and prior facilitation experience.
