Action Learning is a well established way to ask questions and explore solutions safely with others experiencing the same issues.
Funding from Richmond Parish Lands, Heathrow Communities and Achieving for Children via the Community Learning grants provided subsidised and free places in 2018/19. Funding is now underway for the 2019/20 programme. We aim to have places available in two separate groups; one for Parents of primary aged children and a second for Parents of teenagers/young adults.
In Action Learning parents explore challenges together, identify then try out an individual action plan. Typically parents review how their plan works and return to their peer group to share their experiences of what helped them, and maybe what didn't, before deciding what to do next. Sam Silver and Ros Lucas, both trained ALG facilitators, run the groups.
Action Learning can help parents consider a range of issues relating to:
Schooling and Behaviour
Access to Services
Working with Professionals
Career development and parenting an SEN child
Sign up for 2019/20 and learn how techniques used in business and the NHS can help with parenting and working with professionals supporting children with special educational needs.
Watch how social entrepreneurs use the process to develop their dreams, and imagine how Action Learning might translate to supporting your child's future and making space for your well-being as you juggle managing your family, work and parenting challenges.
