Type of Fellowship: General
Year of Fellowship: 2010
Update September 2011
Since returning to work from my secondment I have been extremely busy with the conclusion and evaluation of a major 3 year strategy at Barnardos, where I have been able to consolidate and apply my learning from all the different elements of the fellowship.
I completed the accreditation for the Action Learning Facilitators Programme and am now an accredited facilitator. I am exploring the possibilities of setting up a local action learning set in the North West where I can use my facilitation skills as well as continuing to benefit from being a member.
During the next few months I plan to undertake the accredited coaching programme, organise a mentor and start my research exploring leadership and resilience.
