Education Forum September 2023

Year: 2023
Topic: Education
Author: CELCIS

This Forum meeting focused on Reflection and Action Learning Sets, an adapted form of Action Learning Sets. Reflection and Action Learning Sets are supportive groups of co-workers who regularly come together in a reflective space. Individuals bring a situation from work that they wish to reflect on in the group and, through a structured framework, they are encouraged to think critically to find solutions to support children, young people, and colleagues.

We were delighted to welcome Kyle Fleming, Head of Education, and Eileen McColl, Education Manager, of Erskine Waterfront Campus, CrossReach. 

Attendees heard:

  • Where the concept of Reflection and Action Learning Sets came from;
  • How CELCIS and the staff team at CrossReach worked together to agree a model which worked for them;
  • What was needed to embed Reflection and Action Learning Sets into the school culture and ethos;
  • How the full school team continue to engage in regular sessions;
  • What data was gathered to evaluate the pilot of the model;
  • How the sessions are used for reflection and what benefits have been recognised from participating in the process.
