International Foundation for Action Learning

Log in


Café IFAL is a brand new virtual discussion forum where Action Learning practitioners can share their experiences of using Action Learning in real situations. Whether you wish to present a piece of work you’ve delivered – the struggles and successes - or simply contribute to the debate, join us at Café IFAL.

The format of this virtual event includes a brief presentation of a particular piece of Action Learning practice, followed by open discussion where we share related experience and create opportunities to learn with and from each other.

Sessions last 90 minutes and take place on the Zoom platform.  

Numbers are limited to 15 people.  Costs are £10 for members and £20 for non-members.  All fees go towards hosting further events.

Further details of our next session can be found here.


IFAL is offering facilitated international action learning sets.  We are recruiting members for 4 action learning sets (groups). Sets will be conducted in English. You do not have to have experience of action learning.

We have a few places left in our UK-based action learning set and in ours Amercias set.  We have also had one request from a member based in New Zealand.  If you are interested in joining any of these sets please do get in touch.  We would love to start them all in the (northern hemisphere) autumn.  Enquire here and John Heywood of our Executive Committee will be in touch.

The offer is:

Set 1 will be open to set members from Canada, the US, Mexico, and Central and South America (within approximately 3 hours of Toronto).

Sets 2 & 3 will be open to members from the UK, Europe, and Africa (within approximately 3 hours of GMT).

Set 4 will be open to members from other time zones providing we can accommodate the time differences.

There is also an option to create an additional French-speaking group if there is a demand.

Il existe une option pour créer un groupe francophone s’il y a une demande. Merci de me contacter si ça vous intéresse. Vous n'avez besoin d'aucune expérience d’action learning.
