Q Exchange learning offers in 2021

Through 2021 the Q Exchange team have put together a programme of learning offers to support Q Exchange teams throughout the awards.

Action Learning Sets

Action Learning Sets (ALS) are a structured method to explore issues, challenges and learning in small groups in a safe and supportive environment. It works well when participants commit to regular times to take part. This enables everyone to build trust and a culture of working collectively to support peer learning within the group. Each action learning set will be offered an initial orientation session and four facilitated sessions over the course of the programme. Each session will last two and a half hours.

They will be facilitated by the Action Learning Centre, with Fiona Scrase and Girda Niles.

Please note, for the Action Learning Sets programme we will be offering one place per project team. Ideally, this one place would go to the Project Lead but if this isn’t possible, please select a project team member with a solid overview of the project as a whole, ideally involved in leading the work.


April – December 2021.

Exact dates will be confirmed once we know who is taking part.

Evaluation workshops

The Evaluation Special Interest Group are going to be running a series of workshops between May and October. These are designed to support you to develop and refine your approach to evaluating your project.

These workshops will be facilitated by Karen Ritchie and Emma Gibbard from the Q Evaluation SIG.
