The course is split into two full days of action learning separated by an 11-week break during which participants are asked to carry out their own action learning projects with online support from SEEd.
The course will be led by Ann Finlayson. Over the course of the four days, Ann will work with participants to develop and hone skills for facilitation, learning, participation, change, influence and persuasion. The course will take place at a dedicated environmental building in Stroud, and participants will have the opportunity to learn about its sustainability features.
The total cost of the four days, plus online support from the SEEd team, is £600. This includes materials and lunch and refreshments for the four days making it great value for money. The course is kept intentionally small (maximum 20-25 people) to ensure that each participant can develop their learning as much as possible.
SEEd says that their Learning for Sustainability leadership course is unique in the UK through its combination of facilitation techniques with learning theory, social learning, behaviour change and practice. It focuses on sustainability and the learning processes needed when groups come together to develop ideas.
