The Online Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning course will strengthen your skills in supporting the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of projects and programmes from programme design through to evaluation and impact assessment, and help you to tackle M&E challenges that you may be facing.

This course is conducted over 5 weeks and consists of a blend of ‘real time’ interactive live sessions led by our highly experienced trainers, individual activities and personal feedback from the trainers. It also includes collaborative group work, opportunities to interact with fellow participants on the INTRAC learning platform, and individual coaching to enable you to apply the learning to your work.

The course provides flexibility and enables you to take part in an INTRAC course with others without travelling. The timing of the live sessions is 1 PM GMT. Sessions are recorded and made available on our e-learning platform, so you can view them in your own time if you can’t join live. For more details on the course content and dates of the live sessions, please download the course profile below.

I’d highly recommend INTRAC’s Online Monitoring Evaluation and Learning course – it gives a comprehensive approach to all the key elements of project monitoring and evaluation. Celeste Gomez, Programme Officer, IDEA International, Paraguay
