This one-day course will give an introduction to key evaluation language, concepts and techniques.   With simple guidelines and practical examples, it will provide participants with foundational skills to plan or commission an evaluation.

This course is designed for staff of government, community based or other organisations who plan or implement social interventions that need to be monitored to identify success or effectiveness, or those who wish to revisit the basics of evaluation science. 

No prior experience of evaluation is assumed. 

We will provide resources, templates and learning materials for attendees; it will not be necessary to access specialist software.
