If you’re working in a nonprofit or social enterprise organisation, this short QUTeX course is for you!
This course introduces the principles and practice of evaluating the effectiveness of program activities using evaluative and strategic thinking. The course is perfect for anyone wanting to increase their skills and understanding about how to influence program evaluation and impact reporting.
For eligible organisations, there are subsidised fees when two people attend the course from your organisation. An opportunity not to be missed!
This three day course is designed for anyone involved in grant writing, measuring outcomes, evaluations or reporting to stakeholders. It aims to provide a broad overview of key skills relating to evaluation and impact measurement whilst equipping participants with the skills to foster a learning culture, where evaluation is used to prove and improve the impact of programs and services. No prior experience in program design or evaluation is required as this is pitched at those with an introductory to intermediate level of knowledge.
- Learn the key concepts in a practical and applied setting;
- Gain access to a series of templates and case studies which can be used and shared within their organisation, beyond the life of the workshop experience; and
- Engage with like-minded and supportive peers within a collaborative group learning environment.
This course is facilitated by ACPNS experts, Dr Ruth Knight and Louise Baldwin.
The Social Impact Evaluation – Principles and Practices offered by QUTeX and Hand Heart Pocket is the perfect offering of theory, practice, activities and tools to measure the real impact of the work we do in our communities. The coursework provided by the team at The Australian Centre for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Studies is well crafted to meet the needs of leaders, program leads for organisations creating social impact for their clients. Personally I have found the course materials, the group activities and meeting other like minded not for profit leaders, a great way to learn and sharpen my focus on measuring what matters most in the work I lead. I would highly recommend this course to others interested in measuring all aspects of program delivery and impact, and connecting with other wonderful likeminded leaders of social change.

Participating in the Social Impact Evaluation course has provided an excellent opportunity to extend my learning about the value of planning and evaluating the complex work that YFS undertakes and how we strive to help clients make positive changes in their lives as well as partner with others. The input of theory; application of the knowledge to real scenarios and the networking with other participants has been valuable. It has given me renewed commitment to champion evaluation and learning from it’s outcomes and changes across YFS.
