Progress School

Leeds Progress School

This week I attended Progress School, run by Mike Chitty in Leeds. Mike also runs Progress Schools in Hull and Nottingham, is working on getting one going in Grimsby, and tells me he is open to offers from other places too.

I’m not going to try to describe what Progress School is or does, as Mike does it so much better than I could in this video

Progress School is fundamentally about helping people to remove the barriers to their personal development by mutual aid. I think it is an important element in the growing portfolio of collaborative, peer-led development initiatives, some which take place online, others offline, and some a mixture of the two, which are helping change the way we view progress and development. Find out more about it here

After the session, I was able to record some feedback from Progress School participants about what they get out of attending.
