‘Very helpful! Great atmosphere within the group…good ideas. Very knowledgeable trainer’ (Course participant, February 2018)
Evaluation can sometimes seem like a daunting task, but taking the time to reflect on the strengths and weaknesses of your work with young people is the best way to achieve greater outcomes for future projects. Designed to help you cultivate meaningful and beneficial modes of evaluating creative projects with young people, this course will guide you through creative examples and useful case studies as you prepare to develop and review your own evaluation processes and models.
