Join the Mayvin Practice Groups, a new community of practice

Join our new learning community for practitioners engaged in change and development within organisations. Mayvin is offering a tailor-made, action-focused approach to learning that supports you to do real work, whatever your practice.

Are you looking for a safe space to develop your practice with like-minded practitioners? Do you need to add breadth and depth to your knowledge and practise your skills? Would you like to follow a self-managed approach to learning combined with the support and challenge of formal supervision?

The Mayvin Practice Groups

Practice: the actual application or use of an idea, belief, or method, as opposed to theories relating to it – definition from the Oxford Living Dictionary 

The Mayvin Practice Groups will help you to meet your personal needs and professional goals. This could be in Organisation Development, management, leadership, HR, restorative practice or facilitation. Our focus is on your practice: supporting you to do the real work you need to do. You will join a small, safe group that will enable you to develop your practice intensively. You will also become part of wider, experiential learning and Action Research community.  By joining the Mayvin Practice Groups, you will have the opportunity to:

  1. Define your practice: what territory it is in and how it works
  2. Develop your practice: refine your learning edge in this territory and according to your own learning goals
  3. Create your own curriculum of learning, to enhance your practice, with our support, and the support of your peers in the group
  4. Gain a qualification to at Post Graduate Certificate level or beyond (optional accreditation of your development)
  5. Contribute to the development and sharing of leading-edge practice and new methods.

We are offering places on the first cohort of the Mayvin Practice Groups at a reduced introductory rate of £95 per session.

We’re excited that this first series of the Mayvin Practice Groups, starting in the autumn, also provides an opportunity to be working with the University of Chichester on an Action Research project around Practice-based Learning. Through the Mayvin Practice Groups, you will have the opportunity to participate in this and learn about Action Research as well as developing your own practice.

We’d love for you to join us. Let us know if you’d like to sign up by emailing pip.rowson@mayvin.co.uk.
