Action Learning is an agile development tool that can be applied to any number of different workplace challenges and is immensely effective to help tackle issues relating to challenging relationships, constant change, and demanding environments. It is an accelerated learning tool that can be applied to any number of different workplace issues and challenges, and can also enhance and extend existing development programmes.
This is more than just an opportunity to develop as an Action Learning Set facilitator, but a programme designed with a bespoke accreditation process, with all training and participant development being planned against a competency framework.
The output from this programme will be that the individual delegates from across the South West region will be able to use their skills internally within their organisations but also continue to practice these skills by facilitating action learning sets as part of South West Leadership Academy development programmes.
A programme of two modules, with a two-day first module, followed by a 6-week gap before a one-day second module requiring participants to apply learning between modules and report back in module two.
Individuals (facilitators, coaches, managers) across the South West region who would like to facilitate action learning sets as part of South West Leadership Academy development programmes.
There will be a robust application process to ensure participants meet a minimum level of experience, confidence, and ability.
Aims and objectives:
