Advanced Evaluation (Level 2)

Are you tasked with carrying out or commissioning an evaluation? Would you appreciate guidance on what questions to ask, what outcomes to look for, or how to plan for an evaluation?

This one day, hands-on workshop, run by the NIHR ARC North Thames Academy (formerly the NIHR CLAHRC North Thames Academy), addresses these challenges. By attending, you will gain expert tips on how to design an effective evaluation, and have opportunities to consult with other delegates and facilitators about planning your evaluation.

Having attended the course, delegates will broadly be able to:

  • Develop an evaluation question
  • Apply principles of logic models and programme theory to address their evaluation questions and identify evaluation outcomes
  • Design a plan for conducting or commissioning an evaluation

This workshop is suitable for staff from NHS Trusts, Local Authorities and CCGs. It is not aimed at academic and/or researchers. Delegates should attend the course with an evaluation project in mind. They should have previously attended our “Introduction to Evaluation” course  (in person or online). As part of the course, some pre-workshop preparation (approximately 3 hours) will be required.

All participants will receive a certificate of attendance that can be shared with your professional organisation to claim CPD credits.
