Benefits to you
Applying the learning from the course will enable delegates to identify and measure outputs, outcomes and impact more effectively and identify and use outcome measurement tools appropriate to their own area of work. This will strengthen their case for support by demonstrating the effectiveness of their interventions / projects thus improving the quality of funding applications and raising more money from grant-making bodies!
Delegates will be encouraged to bring their own laptops / tablets to explore the soft outcome measurement tools for themselves.
