Monitoring and evaluation is an essential component of international NGOs, NGOs and civil society organisations striving to continually improve their work and have greater accountability. Given the high demand in the sector, this foundation course is designed to develop individuals' understanding of what M&E entails, why it is so vital, and how to do it well and in a participatory way. The first part of the course starts on 18 June 2013.

This course ensures that those who are new to M&E have a thorough understanding of M&E concepts and have built up the practical skills and the confidence needed to do M&E effectively. Participants will learn to use a range of M&E tools and activities that will help them improve accountability, learning and effectiveness of projects and programmes.

At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Define the main terms and concepts associated with the processes of monitoring and evaluating projects and programmes
  • Articulate the key purposes of M&E and be able to prioritise according to the context
  • Select and use a range of tools with confidence • Apply results of M&E processes to both accountability and organisational learning.

INTRAC's blended learning courses are delivered remotely by a highly experienced development professional and trainer – through webinar technology and an online learning platform. The course combines trainer-led presentations, discussions and exercises; peer learning with other participants based worldwide; individual learning; and one-to-one coaching with the trainer. These courses focus heavily on applying learning to the workplace throughout the course. Outside of the trainer-led sessions, participants will work through resources independently, thereby tailoring their learning to their specific needs. This innovative course design means individual's needs can be addressed whilst also balancing work commitments. It also saves on time and the cost associated with overseas travel.
