This interactive two-day workshop will equip you to measure your outputs and outcomes and to track your social impact.
The workshop unpacks the questions of monitoring and evaluation (M&E): why it is important, how to do it and how to take the next step to measuring social value and impact.
The workshop will cover the following:
- Programme management and the role of M&E;
- M&E concepts and terms;
- Programme theories: theories of change and theories of action;
- Outcomes-based M&E planning;
- M&E tools and methods;
- Different types of evaluation: what the elements of evaluation are and how to go about planning one;
- Impact measurement; and
- Learning and reflection practices.
On completion of this workshop, you will have:
- An appreciation of how M&E can support learning and accountability processes;
- An understanding of the purpose of M&E, the differences between them and how they fit into broader programme management;
- A familiarity with the core terms and concepts;
- An understanding of programme theories, including theories of change and theories of action, and how they are used;
- The ability to formulate and use basic performance indicators for reporting; and
- An understanding of what evaluation is and how it should be undertaken.
