This article draws upon the work of two practitioner-researchers who are facilitating a Practitioner Researcher (PR) network (CETTnet) with a small group of Lifelong Learning Sector (LLS) professionals. In this account, the researchers reflect critically upon their own experience, and the power and possibilities of practitioner-research activity in the LLS. The discussion presents the learning curve that the practitioner-researchers identified for themselves, as well as their heightened understanding of potential barriers to PR in the LLS. The article finishes by reflecting upon the early learning of the researchers from this collaborative research project with some tentative directions for further exploration in this area.
