I'd like to host the
Learning Marathon in SE London
Hi I'm Kristin. I want to host a multidisciplinary peer group for career explorers or career changers of any age in South East London. Help me launch by letting me know you're interested!
What's the Learning Marathon?
A 6 month learning accelerator where you grow yourself, together with a dozen peers, each tackling a different challenge.
With support from your host, you pool your ideas, skills, experience, perspectives and momentum to create a rich 'soil' that will fuel your growth. Together you take on the Path, 6 months of activities designed to maximise your collective potential.
Kristin has worked in alumni relations for the last 5 years developing and facilitating alumni networks across the globe.
She has worked for the international research institute ZMT, BPP University and as freelancer delivering events ranging from regional workshops, international conferences to social networking evenings. Kristin loves her job which allows her to travel to places such as Zanzibar, New Zealand and Senegal.
Kristin loves to explore different workshop methods creating motivation, engagement and inspiration. Working with participants ranging from students and researchers to artists and barristers, she is looking forward to engage with you – being very interested in personal development, she’d love to get to know you, your reasons and ideas for changing your career path.
In Kristin’s first Learning Marathon, she will be exploring questions around career change: What are my key skills and interests? What could be a first step to start changing my career now?
Dates and details
What does the programme look like?
All the detail is here. The Learning Marathon is designed to fit alongside work. Fortnightly meetups are therefore on weekday evenings and longer intensive days tend to be over the weekend.
What's the application process like?
The application process is simple. You'll tell us a bit about yourself and make a short proposal for the project you'll work on via an application form. If you're shortlisted you will have an interview with your host over the phone.
What's the time commitment?
The guideline we give is that you will need to be able to commit 5+ hours per week. Some weeks it will be more, other weeks it may be less. Some of this time will be spent in meetups and workshops, some of it will be self-initiated.
What do we look for in participants?
Commitment to a Learning Question that you will pursue as a self-led project.
Real interest in learning with and from a group of peers. You'll have great listening skills and be able to work in collaboration, articulate your ideas and make them visible.
A proactive spirit. You come with lots of ideas and creative energy to make them a reality.
We also welcome applications from pairs or collaborators working on the same goal or project.
Your host will be thinking about the range of skills and attributes that applicants will bring, looking for connections between Learning Questions, and aiming to connect you to peers who will multiply your learning.
Expressions of interest
You can help Kristin launch her peer group by making an expression of interest and/or spreading the word. You'll be first to know when applications open. You can send any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
