This Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) for Results training course is for managers and monitoring and evaluation officers who need to supervise, manage, plan and implement M&E in their projects and programmes. The course addresses M&E for the entire results chain, including the all-important outcomes; it covers the principles, and embeds the practice of M&E for results. You can attend the M&E for Results 10 day course and later attend our Theory of Change or Leadership and Management for Development training (within a 12 month period) and receive our Certificate in Applied Evaluation or Certificate in Development Management.

Why choose this course

Delivered by our practitioners with extensive participatory field experience, this is the leading M&E course for development professionals. Those responsible for project or programme-level M&E benefit from the latest M&E thinking and practice, including results approaches. This course will enable you to bring the learning into practice and to understand the difference between data, information and knowledge which is a key aspect to ensure strategic decision making.
