Outcome and impact training
Training from NCVO Charities Evaluation Services gives you practical skills to measure outcomes and impact in a way that works for you, and your funders.
Our step-by-step programme helps you progress through planning, measurement and reporting. You'll come away with the skills you need to develop a fit for purpose monitoring and evaluation system.
You can book a place at one of our courses in London or we can come to you – for a single course or as part of a larger training programme for your staff, volunteers or grantees.

Plan your impact and evaluation
Planning is the first stage of any successful evaluation. We have four courses to help:
- Developing your theory of change
- Outcome and impact measurement – one-day course
- Outcome and impact measurement – two-day course
- How to assess the outcomes of funded work (for funders and commissioners)
Measure your impact

Once you have your data, it's crucial that you know how to make sense of it, share your findings and use the information to improve what you do. Our final course will help:
We can come to you
All our courses can be delivered at your venue, providing an affordable way to train groups of staff, trustees or volunteers. We can also develop and deliver bespoke training tailored for your organisation.
We run training programmes for charities and funders including BBC Children in Need, Comic Relief UK, Macmillan Cancer Support and Trust for London. Working with us will build self-evaluation skills among your staff or grantees, helping you generate better data about what you're achieving.
