Free Community Works course on analysing data and measuring impact

Community Works are running a workshop for groups and organisations to help them gather better data and analyse it well. It is aimed at groups who are already experienced with monitoring and evaluation.

The workshop will explore monitoring, evaluation and impact through the practical learning of creating a Data Management Strategy. It will examine the benefits of having such a strategy, its concept and contents, and what it might bring to your group. There will also be space to share your experiences in this area with peers.

Confident data gathering can enable your group or organisation to:

  • Tell your story more effectively
  • Join your story up with others
  • Celebrate your successes
  • Develop safe and dignified ways of gathering quality data from service users
  • Capture the ‘real’ experience, essence and difference that your work makes
  • Influence others more effectively

As a participant you will:

  • Explore how organisational values can and should form part of your Data Management Strategy
  • Map your current data management practice against your organisational needs and objectives
  • Identify how you can develop your data management strategy through a range of different approaches including: service user involvement, identification of internal and external data sources, combining data to produce new insights into strategy and service user need, and use of IT within your organisation.

The course will run twice:

Monday 7th December 12.30 – 4.00pm: Venue to be confirmed

Thursday 17th December 12.30 – 4.00pm: Venue – Community Works
