Action Learning is based on the principle that the most effective learning takes place when participants access state-of-the-art thinking and tools that they immediately seek to apply to solve their real-world problems.

By grouping learners both within and across organisations to share experiences and knowledge about real organisational problems the Not-for-Profit sector faces, the program builds collective leadership capacity that will facilitate the implementation of positive organisational and sector change.

The program is typically spaced over about four months and interaction in the classroom are as important as personalised goal-setting exercises, virtual meet-ups, and ongoing reflection to realise growth and the implementation of change. The full program involves six full-day on-site sessions, and at least 2 hours personal time to be invested each week.
