Outcome and impact measurement (two days)

  • 2 days
  • Impact
On day one of this course you will spend time clarifying the outcomes and impact of your work as well as what you plan to do (outputs/activities) to achieve these outcomes. You will create a monitoring and evaluation plan with indicators to enable you to assess the progress you are making both in the delivery of your work and the difference it is making. On day two we will explore different ways to collect data so that you can select the most appropriate, feasible methods and tools to collect useful data to report on to funders and stakeholders.


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

  • have learnt how to develop an evaluation framework to help you assess your effectiveness and impact

  • be more aware of the different methods you can use to measure outputs, outcomes and impact

  • have more confidence to choose appropriate targets and data collection tools

  • have more knowledge of good practice in applying data collection processes. 

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 have already attended the Outcome and impact measurement (one-day) course then try our How to collect outcomes and impact data as the next course.
