Exciting development opportunity for women to undertake action learning with peers from North West universities



2020 North West HE Cross Institutional Action Learning Programme for Women

We are pleased to offer this development opportunity for up to 10 women working in academic and professional services roles to take part in cross institutional action learning sets with peers from universities in the North West region.  Action learning provides a unique space for women to support each other to overcome work and career related challenges.  

This opportunity has been taken up previously by 150 women. Participant feedback includes: it was not role specific, so there were a range of individuals with different roles/skills/perspective which enriched my experience and It provided a rare opportunity to discuss issues confidentially outside of ones own workplace which helped me to develop more self-confidence and self-awareness.

 What is planned?

We plan to recruit action learning set members from institutions by the end of December 2019.  Following recruitment of action learning set members, there will be a launch event in January 2020, to welcome participants, demonstrate the action learning process we will be adopting and commence the action learning.  Following the launch, the sets will participate in action learning on four occasions with peers from different institutions.
