Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) for Results addresses M&E for the entire results chain, including the all-important outcomes. This 10-day course with 5-day option 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 International 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 providing latest M&E thinking and practice, including results approaches. The course is for managers and monitoring and evaluation officers who need to supervise, manage, plan and implement M&E in their projects and programmes. This course brings learning into practice and enables you to understand the difference between data, information and knowledge which is a key aspect to ensure strategic decision making. No prior knowledge of M&E is necessary.
