Type of Fellowship: General
Year of Fellowship: 2010
Update March 2011
I completed the three day Action Learning Facilitator training run by Action Learning Associates in February and found it to be an excellent course and something I am already using on my secondment. The big event for me was on 23 February, launching my research into green exercise and dementia.
I am currently working each Monday and Tuesday at the Young Foundation, focusing specifically on helping the Citizens University team with their work prior to launch in April/May, learning lots and generally doing some great work.
I have now started the final element of the Fellowship, my coaching, with a first meeting at the end of March. The coaching will run on, although my active Fellowship will finish shortly.
