It will also include a demonstration of the Community Insight Tool, which allows you to find, explore and use a wide range of facts and figures at different geographic levels for Brighton and Hove. By the end of the course you will be able to:

  • Measure success against the aims and objectives of your organisation
  • Set a baseline against which to monitor and evaluate future work and use the Community Insight Tool to help you do this
  • Set and measure outputs, outcomes and milestones
  • Use different qualitative and quantitative monitoring techniques
  • Use the information you have gathered to critically evaluate your work
  • Begin to convince funders and commissioners of the added value of your work.

Techniques covered will include record keeping, questionnaires and evaluation forms, focus groups, interviewing and other participatory methods of collecting information about your activities or services. There will also be an opportunity to talk about building relationships with your funders.
