We would like to invite you to join us for an exciting complementary workshop and Annual General Meeting on 27 September 2017, at the Indian YMCA.  Please see the attached flyer for more details.

This year’s workshop will be an introduction to the Theory of Change (ToC) and how you can use it in your practice and organisation. ToC is a powerful process used by many civil society organisations to help them clarify their impact and make sure their activities are fit for purpose.

Over the past six months the IFAL executive have been engaged in reviewing our strategic plans and activities for a more relevant and internationally based IFAL. We were guided in our work by using To C as a process.  We would like to share with you our learning as an example of how ToC could work in practice. We will also be seeking your views and suggestions as to how your IFAL can continue to meet your needs and ambitions and address the role of Action Learning in today’s connected world.

To book your place, please complete and return a booking form.

For anyone interested in joining the IFAL Executive Committee, please contact our administrator for more details. Nominations must be received no later than Tuesday 29 August.

Finally, we are exploring ways of making this AGM and future IFAL events accessible to members and supporters who are not able to attend in person. Please let us know if you are interested in participating in IFAL’s events remotely, and how we might best involve you. We look forward to hearing from you.

With our best wishes,

Heidi and Jafar
co-Chairs, IFAL


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 Helen at admin@ifal.org.uk.
