Training should always be designed with the customer in mind, and I am always ready to design a bespoke training package to support your staff or clients.
In 2008 I trained as an Outcomes Champion with Charity Evaluation Services, and delivered their training to about 30 voluntary sector organisations.
Outcomes are a great way of tieing your work to the processes you will use to prove you have achieved the goals you set. While I am no longer affiliated to CES, I am able to offer similar training covering all aspects of project planning, monitoring and evaluation. One of the biggest challenges in applying an outcomes approach to your work is wading through the maze of different terminology which is used by different funders. Having worked with an outcomes approach for over ten years and trained others to do the same for a similar period I am well equipped to help you identify what different funders are looking for and apply this approach to improve your planning and monitoring.
I can also offer facilitation of larger events. I am an enthusiast of Open Space Technology and have witnessed first hand how this powerful approach to managing productive meetings can generate results far beyond first expectations.
Please get in touch to discuss how to use your most valuable resource – your own staff (or clients) – to generate the agenda, the content and the results from your team meetings.
I have designed and delivered training programmes in the UK and overseas, and have delivered in both English and Bahasa Indonesia. I produced a training programme for new recruits to our NGO working in post-tsunami Aceh and also designed faith literacy training for the Olympic Delivery Authority.
Coming from a background in overseas community development with additional experience in secondary school teaching, I believe effective training must give opportunity to demonstrate learning. This is informed by the work of adult educators such as Jane Vella or Paulo Friere.
Positive Outcomes – helping you prove the good work you do.
