Course content

An ideal course for people new to impact practice.

Learning about impact practice is all about learning how to best serve the people you support.

This means planning what difference you want to make; collecting the right information to know if you’re achieving your goals; assessing what impact you’re having; and learning and adapting your work.

This 3 part interactive workshop looks at the fundamentals of impact and how to choose the right tools for you.  Can take each unit individually but will get the maximum benefit from taking all 3.

Understanding Impact part 2

This session builds on part 1 and looks at Do and Assess on the cycle of good practice. Do: Measure your performance against key goals, Assess: Make sense of the data you collect

Collecting data will help you understand if your programme or service is working and how you can make it better. It’s important to choose data collection methods that will provide the most accurate answers to your evaluation questions. Assessing your data involves looking for patterns and themes, and drawing conclusions about what is happening.
