Outcome and impact measurement (one day)

  • 1 day
  • Impact
Being clear on your outcomes and impact can help you plan, manage and improve your work, making the biggest difference you can for your beneficiaries. On this course, you’ll create an evaluation plan so you can demonstrate the difference your work makes. The course also includes a brief introduction to ways to collect data. If you want to effectively monitor and evaluate the work you do and the difference it makes, this course is for you!


By the end of the course you will :

  • have a better understanding of monitoring and evaluation theory and practice
  • be able to identify and describe the outcomes and impact of your work
  • be more aware of the different methods you can use to measure outputs, outcomes and impact
  • have learnt how to develop an evaluation framework to help you assess your effectiveness and impact.

Who should attend?

We recommend this course to any organisation that wants to learn more about monitoring and evaluation. It's particularly useful if you are new to outcome and impact measurement, responsible for managing and reporting to funders and trustees, or are in the planning stages of a project or service. If you are already clear on the outputs and outcomes of your work, and have set indicators to measure them, you may wish to attend our How to collect outcome and impact data  course instead
