If the answer of any of these questions is yes, then this is the right course for you!
Since 2010, donors have increasingly required organisations to demonstrate the Value for Money of their interventions. While DFID has been the pioneer of the concept, many donors are following suit and now expect organisations they fund to be able to demonstrate VfM at different stages of the programme cycle.
The course builds on very practical applications of VfM to respond to donor requirements and to foster learning, which have been tested by several organisations, including ActionAid, the Danish Refugee Council, the World Health Organization, Womankind Worldwide and Trocaire, among others.
Who is it for?
Suitable for those who are new to or have little experience of managing and measuring VFM in programme design, proposal writing and the preparation of programme budgets.
What you will learn
This course will be delivered entirely online, through facilitated live sessions (using Zoom) as well as individual and group activities on the Bond learning platform. We work hard to make sure you get the same level of interaction and facilitator support as you would in our training room. You’ll work in breakout rooms, use case studies and co-create documents – all online
