Build evaluation and reporting capacity with Visual Insights

Eval Basics SS-01.png

Evaluation has an important role to play in evidencing the difference programs, projects and other initiatives are making. A major block to starting on the pathway to evaluation is understanding the language and knowing the steps.

Visual Insights' bite-sized evaluation and reporting building blocks use a 'pictures and stories', low-jargon format to engage and motivate teams in applying effective evaluation and reporting tools and concepts from the get-go.

Mix and match the training packages to suit your organisation.

Are you ready for it?

Our team training packages are ideal for you and your team if you:

  • Want to improve the service you provide and the difference you make

  • Want to rapidly increase your evaluation knowledge and skills by being supported in facilitating a package
  • And your team is ready to come together to further the initiative and evaluation.

Why facilitate your team? 

After attending a presentation, you retain approximately 5%. After you teach something, you retain close to 95%.

These packages are much more than training, they build the evaluation capacity and program delivery strength of your team and organisation. This model of directly applying training to your work as you learn works!

Don't have a team facilitator?

If you don't have a facilitator right now? No problem - borrow one of our VIP facilitators to train your team.

What is the cost?

Take advantage of our introductory package price in 2022.

A standard 4- topic session package (6 weeks, BYO facilitator with a team of 6) is $2900 (excl. GST)

 

This is roughly equivalent to the cost of one person attending an interstate conference.

For a team of six, this equates to less than $500 per person per course.

And it includes evaluation tools and facilitator resources that you and your team and continue to use.

Contact us to enrol your team to take steps to build evaluation capability and organisational strength.

Discounts are available when you sign up for more than one package.

And we can customise our packages to suit the specific needs of your organisation. Contact us to find out how.

Thank you for another excellent (and fun) course! The skills you cover, and your ability to relate theory to real life experience, helped me to apply my learning from day 1.

Sam’s combination of theory with practical activities really helped the learning to stick, as well as providing the opportunity to work on my project. The combination makes this time well spent when our diaries are all so busy. The visual tools, workbooks and templates are also invaluable and are now a permanent feature on my desk!
