This course builds on participants’ understanding and skills of how to develop sustainable and cost effective monitoring and evaluation processes and practices within their own projects, programmes and organisations.

It is also relevant for those trying to improve and enhance current monitoring and evaluation (M&E) systems, or supporting partners to develop and implement effective M&E. The course provides an overview of all aspects of M&E from planning to M&E and impact assessment, with a focus on ensuring that M&E contributes towards improving organisational learning and accountability.

Here is what one of our previous course participants said:

"This is the most energised, precise, effective, wonderful and best training style I’ve seen in a long time. Highly participatory and yet so informative. Also very practical."

The cost of this course is £1360 non-residential (includes training materials, lunch and refreshments) or £1770 residential (includes training materials, and accommodation for duration of course). Individual coaching is offered to course participants at a discounted rate of £50 per 50-minute session.
