End date



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.

What you will learn

By the end of the training participants will:

  • Have developed a deeper understanding of the characteristics of effective M&E and M&E systems
  • Have reviewed approaches to planning for M&E, including Theory of Change, and explored some of the challenges with these
  • Be able to select and use appropriate data collection methods and tools effectively and explored debates around newer qualitative and participatory approaches
  • Have considered principles and steps in data analysis and the issue of quality of evidence
  • Have explored ways to address issues around impact assessment and the M&E of outcomes and impact
  • Have considered their own role in bringing about improved M&E within their projects, programmes and organisations.

What you require

The course will use case studies and practical examples from the trainers and participants to illustrate and explore issues. The course will be interactive and participatory, with a balance between trainer inputs and group work. There will be focussed time and a structure for participants to reflect on and apply learning to a practical M&E challenge or issue they are facing and to think through what needs to happen on their return to work, in order to build on the learning from the training.
