Learning and development opportunity with the Fast Stream and Early Talent team

The Fast Stream and Early Talent (FSET) team are looking for people who are passionate about developing themselves and others to be facilitators of Action Learning Sets for new Fast Streamers joining in September and October 2020.

What is an Action Learning Set (ALS)?

An ALS comprises a group of professionals who work in a structured manner to solve work-related issues using powerful questioning techniques.

In order for Fast Streamers to be successful in setting up an ALS, they need to be supported by a facilitator for the first three sessions. This will ensure they are confident of the types of questions to ask, and how to self manage an ALS.

What will I gain from being an ALS facilitator?

This is a great opportunity to support Fast Streamers at the start of their journey, while also developing your skills in coaching, listening, asking powerful questions. It will also help you build a cross governmental network.

Time commitment

All ALS Facilitators will need to find time to watch a short video training training session which gives an overview of what an Action Learning Set is, what is expected of you and other frequently asked questions.

You will need to read through the Facilitator Guide and prepare yourself for your first sessions.

You will need to facilitate your ALS group for three sessions over the course of the Fast Streamers’ first posting.
