UCISA has collaborated with our equivalent associations for Finance, Estates, HR and the Library (BUFDG, AUDE, UHR and SCONUL) to run two series of Action Learning Sets for Deputy Director level (or equivalent) staff. Action Learning Sets are a powerful experience for leaders and brings people together to exchange, support and challenge each other in action and learning.   A group of 6-7 participants from across the four associations will form a set who will then together attend 5 workshops over 8 months with an external facilitator.  The process will help to develop participants' active listening and questioning skills, expose them to different challenges and develop a fresh perspective on issues.

The cost, which is significantly subsidised, is £699 per candidate for the full set of 5 sessions. Further details including dates and how to apply are available here.
