News > CSTD Learning Community

For CSTD Graduates and Fellow Supervision Graduates who are currently writing, or planning to write about some aspect of their work practice.

Friday 18th May 2018 from 9.45am – 4pm

at Barrow Castle, Rush Hill, Bath BA2 2QT

Cost:   £40 – and bring lunch to share

We are currently in the process of forming a Learning Community for CSTD Graduates and Associates who are currently writing, or planning to write about some aspect of their work practice.  This came out of the last CSTD CPD day where a few of us expressed an interest in this.  The aim of the learning community is to create a supportive network in which we can present, discuss and get feedback on our writing and our thinking that informs it.  We envisage meeting for 3 or 4 days a year with the intention of committing to the Learning Community on an ongoing basis, attending all days where possible.  We appreciate people may need to come to the first day to check out if is what they want!  Judy has kindly offered the use of Barrow Castle for this endeavour.  Details of the first meeting below:

9.45am     Arrivals

10.00am    Introductions/ Creative Group activity

10.30am    Individual participant presentation of writing and group discussion

11.30am    Break

12.45pm    Lunch/Networking

1.45pm     Small group presentations/ discussions about our writing

2.45pm     Break

3.00pm     Identify what we want from future days, how we want to work together and planning for the
next session.

4.00pm     Close

Further information

The group will essentially develop as a peer led group, although I will assume some responsibility for coordination, to ensure the practicalities of group and structure of the days are attended to.  My hope is we can develop a supportive, creative and enjoyable space to reflect on our writing and have some fun learning together!  There will be a nominal cost for each day of £40 to cover the venue and administrations costs.  If you are keen to be part of this but not able to make a Friday then please let us know and we can hopefully look at what works for all of us.

If you wish to discuss this further, please get in touch with Judy or myself on the contacts below.  Please let me know if you are keen to present some writing on the first day.
