This paper reports on a set of learning experiments which could be considered as first steps towards learning at differ ent levels of a hierarchical approach to imitation learning. A learner robot knows a priori how to execute some be haviours but does not know when. By following a teacher robot through a series of experiences and through imitating the demonstrated behaviours, the learner robot learns when to execute each behaviour and subsequently learns how to forage. The performance of the learner as well as the fac tors that affect its performance are described.
