FREE Training on Empowerment Evaluation30 Apr 2012
11 MAY, 9.30 am– 2.30pm, Adamsdown Play Centre, Cardiff
Nia Lewis has developed this training as part of her action research dissertation in Community Regeneration which is exploring the barriers to and benefits of Participative Monitoring and Evaluation (PME) in grassroots and front line community development work in Wales. It is the first time the training has been run and is part of a pilot project to explore the use of different tools that can be used to simplify the integration of PME into community based projects.
The training will take a fun and hands on approach to learning about Monitoring and Evaluation and include the opportunity to try out different tools and activities that you can use in your work. Monitoring and Evaluation doesn’t have to be boring and this training aims to prove that with a little creativity project beneficiaries can be involved in the M&E process in a fun and engaging way that helps improve project effectiveness, sustainability and opportunities for learning and empowerment in addition to funding success.
The training is aimed at anyone involved in affecting community change such as grassroots volunteers, youth & play workers and community development workers etc and your feedback on the tools used will inform the development of a Community Action Toolkit that will aid community projects to more easily and effectively collect information on their projects and use it to learn from and evidence their achievements.
Please contact Nia Lewis on email@example.com for more information or to book a place.
