Job: Action Learning Facilitator tender

We are looking to recruit an Action Learning set facilitator to work in Gloucestershire.


Create Gloucestershire (CG) is a collaborative laboratory for change - a space for dialogue, incubation, research and enterprise. We are driven and resourced by our membership base.  Our goal is ‘making arts everyday’, valuing the central role and purpose of the arts in our lives. 

One of our priorities for the next two years is to grow a pool of extraordinary and diverse artists and independent producers in Gloucestershire. This is vital to all our manifesto aims, which you can read about here:

CG is addressing this need through a combination of training, bespoke and peer support, aimed at sharing practice and learning. One strand of this is the development of action learning sets across the county, starting with 1 set in 2015. This will be developed further in 2016, with the possibility of two additional sets, pending evaluation of year 1.

Our ambition is that the sets will give professionals working in the arts and cultural sector a chance to work beyond their usual art form or geographical boundaries, to gain a better understanding of other ways of working and to develop connections and relationships across the sector.

To ensure sustainability we would like the facilitator to explore each set becoming self-facilitating, post their facilitated period.
