Case studies

Training in Monitoring and Evaluation (1)

A large Sport for Development funder wished to provide in-service training on Monitoring and Evaluation to its staff. OCR designed and provided a 1 day training course on M&E consisting of formal ‘chalk and talk’, workshops and discussions.

Training in Monitoring and Evaluation (2)

We are currently delivering a two module course in M&E to support the Laureus M&E toolkit which we developed.  Clients have included Streetgames and the Rugby Football Foundation.  This course covers the definition of outcomes, design of a quantitative survey relevant to those outcomes, data collection and logistics, and analysis and reporting.
