This programme utilises the 'Action Learning' approach. This is based on three guiding principles:

  1. People learn best from reflected practice, by stepping back & thinking about what they are doing - and why
  2. The best test of any learning is to try it out in action
  3. The learning process is strengthened by regularly sharing the experience with those who are also learning by doing
