Administrative Processes

June 26, 2018

As some of you may know, over the last year at IFAL we have been revisiting our aims and direction to make them more relevant for our current times.

We would like to thank you for your continued support for IFAL while we are doing this. As a part of these changes we have started a comprehensive review of our administrative processes in order to be able to provide you, our members and supporters, a more effective and streamlined service. We shall let you know when this work has been completed.

Meanwhile, please contact us and our new administrator, Sally Taylor, at with your comments, questions and membership renewal enquiries.


IFAL recently ran a workshop in London entitled ‘An Introduction to Action Learning’

As a follow-on to the workshop, IFAL is offering – whether you attended the workshop or not – an opportunity to experience Action Learning through taking part in an Action Learning Set. The approach used will be that described on the IFAL website.

The Set is scheduled to start at the beginning of April and will be 6 sessions of 3 hours each at times and dates to suit participants.  They will be facilitated ‘virtually’ by teleconference, by experienced AL facilitators. Alternatively, face-to-face meetings may be possible if participants can provide a venue (and geography allows!). The fee for the six sessions is £240 per person.

Joining the Set will give you:

  • the opportunity to focus on work and/or personal issues, in a confidential setting
  • the opportunity to develop your skills in coaching, active listening and group work
  • experience of a model of Action Learning which is widely used
  • the benefit of working with an experienced facilitator.

If you would like more information about joining an Action Learning Set, please contact Sally at
