Grant evaluation: Painful to plain sailing in 7 simple steps

We know that robust evaluations make for stronger grant programs, and that stronger grant programs generally lead to better outcomes and impacts.

But how do you get started?

This practical, one-day workshop will teach you how to build a responsive evaluation process for your grants program. You will work with other like-minded grants managers and be guided by evaluation experts who will extend your understanding of the ins and outs of viable, workable programs.

Register for this event online

Workshop participants will walk away with:

  • The know-how and confidence needed to build a strong, practical evaluation framework aligned to your program goals
  • Greater clarity about how to prioritise your efforts to ensure you focus on the areas where the most evaluation impact will be achieved
  • Simple techniques that will help your applicants better articulate how they will evaluate their project and effectively report their evaluation outcomes in their acquittal reports
  • Methods for avoiding ad-hoc, onerous, unnecessary and time-wasting data collection practices (that eat up your time and the time of your applicants)
  • The skills needed to deliver a compelling evaluation report (story)

    We anticipate that many participants will reflect and work on a "live" program during this workshop, though this is not a pre-requisite for participation.

    What materials should you bring with you?

    This workshop will look at examples from your own individual programs. You are encouraged to bring with you:

    • Your program guidelines;
    • An application form, assessment form and acquittal form of a grant program you are interested in focussing on;
    • Four examples of projects that you have funded (including the application, assessment, progress and acquittal reports).

    Cost: $495 per attendee per session (Incl. GST). including GST as well as lunch and refreshments.
