Feedback from our customers in the Third sector sector

This is an opportunity to learn a critical framework for analysing and moving forward issues.

Poverty Alliance

The trainer helped the group really well.  Kept us engaged, enthused & energised.  Helped us problem share and think about the application to our project .  Really worthwhile.  Three days which helped build individual and team skills, confidence & support the development of a programme of Action Learning.

Anela Anwar Programme Manager Oxfam

It’s something you have to go, and be part of and really experience it to understand its value and application.  I really enjoyed this course.  Not only was it throught provoking, it helped us gain some clarity around issues our project faces.

Anna Baillie Project Officer The Poverty Alliance

The trainer, clearly conveyed complex ideas in a way that was easy to follow.  An excellent well-rounded course.  I feel confident in my ability to deliver effective Action Learning Facilitation.

Project Officer

Action Learning is a unique style of working that helps people consider challenges in a very different way than ordinary discussions.  The training has helped me understand the principles, practice and application of Action Learning through experiencing all stages & roles myself.

Chelsea Marshall Project Officer Nourish Scotland

If you are looking for methods and approaches to help you make a change, then this course will provide plenty information, guidance and hands on practice to develop your skills, understanding and confidence.

Julian Holbrook Project Officer Nourish Scotland

The course was really participatory, intense and focused on practicing the process of Action Learning.  It was well structured with a clear agenda and could flex to the needs of the group.

The unique characteristics of this course are being in a group of people from different backgrounds, diverse skill sets, and perspectives who are all keen to learn and share in an inclusive way.


Rachael Burton Network Producer Watershed Arts Trust

The course was well structured with plenty of practical skills learning, space for reflection and shared thinking.

The learning is invaluable, motivating and energising.

Rita Liddell Chief Officer BAND (Building a New Direction)

I started the process with, I will admit, a little scepticism and a naive approach to the benefits of coaching and mutual learning but with a keeness to develop that.  Through the action learning sessions I have been encouraged by both my own attitude and to sharing in a safe environment.  The clearest benefit for me has been to make suggestions rather than define solutions.

Head of Customer Service Alzheimer's Society

The action learning set was enjoyable, nurturing and left much to ponder upon.  I listened a lot and it gave me time out from having to come up with the answers.  I found it reassuring because I have been around a long time and it allowed me to be involved in something that involved peeling back the layers and reminding ourselves that these are issues that we all wrestle with on a daily basis.
