Peers across the North East and Yorkshire helping each other solve problems.

Purpose –. The aim of the sets is to provide up to five female academic colleagues from each Institution with a space to focus on career enhancement and to provide networking opportunities across the HE sector.
Action Learning provides a methodology for tackling intractable work placed issues. It is a process that has challenge, support and skillful questioning at its core.
The different perspectives brought by others who are not so closely-related to the work context being described often stimulate broader thinking about an issue than would be the case if an individual were left to tackle it alone. Small group discussions are intended to generate both action and understanding
Dates – A successful pilot programme ran in 2016/17 and following this we have run another cohort during 2017/18. Plans for 2018/19 will be agreed shortly, with recruitment likely to take place in September 2018
The first set includes a launch event, with a chance to meet and network with the whole group/cohort, and the final set ends with a feedback/evaluation activity. At each set, each colleague should get around 30 minutes to present and discuss their issue/challenge/opportunity within their set
How can I attend? - Nominations will likely be sought via Deans and Directors around September 2018. There are a maximum 5 places per institution per cohort so supporting statements may be requested
