Feedback from our customers who participated in Virtual action learningVirtual action learning facilitator training
Participants of virtual action learning take part in action learning sets without travelling to attend. It can help bring peers together from multinational organisations. Our work has reached people in 57 countries across the globe, and we can operate in several languages including French, Spanish and Russian.
I now have trust in the process of the whole approach, it’s been great to have the ability to share with total strangers and see how the group developed. It’s been a liberating experience for me.

It has reinvigorated my passion for action learning. It has definitely acted as Continuous Professional Development for me. I’ve learned about how I could include Virtual Action Learning in my freelance work.

I’m more competent about facilitating Virtual Action Learning now, I understand the differences and the similarities. I am an action learning convert and this experience has extended it.
Fiona Becker, NSPCC
I appreciated working with all of you and I benefited from it. How often do we get feedback when we facilitate? It felt honest and constructive. It was refreshing to have people from different walks of life. I’ve enjoyed being with nice and friendly company. The last session about how we sell and promote it to companies has been very useful.

I’ve gained a greater understanding of action learning sets and think that I will be able to use this to the benefit of the organisation in the future.

This methodology has a useful structure which can help teams learn together, discuss their issues in a safe environment, create generative dialogue and solutions. It increases team spirit, awareness, motivation and eventually performance in organisations.
Also, in today’s global and fast changing business environment, being able to do it virtually saves time and cost.
The system is easy to implement.
Being new to the world of digital campaigning the virtual action learning set was really useful as it gave me access to experienced campaigners who have a solid grasp of the use and potential for a really strategic and powerful engagement tool. VAL is a great way to connect with people doing the same work as you. It was great to learn from both the differences and similarities in challenges that we face and have access to people who’ve struggled with similar issues.

Virtual action learning would be a wonderful tool to use if face to face discussions for parent/teacher meetings are difficult to plan but necessary for the team to have. Especially in today’s society when parents, teachers, therapists, and other stakeholders all have different schedules and find it hard to be in one place for a set time, using the virtual action learning model to work through a potential problem that may arise in the school environment may be beneficial for all involved.

In a VAL set you can talk frankly about your issues, everything said is in confidence. No advice is given, they ask questions and you will find the answers yourself. Then you do whatever is your plan on the issue and report back the next time.
