(Edinburgh) Monitoring & Evaluation: Learn to identify the steps you have taken and the impact of your project

Learn how to carefully measure and record what steps you have taken through the delivery of your befriending service and how to analyze this information to reach conclusions about the impact your service has had. In order to maintain best practice in your befriending project, it is important to follow your progress, review the work you have achieved and evaluate whether changes need to be made. This course will provide you with the knowledge and understanding required to do just that! On completion of the course, participants will have:

  • Define what monitoring and evaluation mean
  • Examine why befriending organisations monitor and evaluate and what the challenges are
  • Discuss what we mean by outcomes and started to define them for our projects
  • Identify the difference between outcomes and outputs
  • Apply indicators to outcomes
  • Demonstrate how to set baselines
  • Classify the different kinds of information that can be collected to evidence indicators and thus outcomes
  • Recognize the language of monitoring and evaluation
  • Create action plans for improving monitoring and evaluation within their service
