How do you expect projects to measure impact? Is an evaluation required?

Ufi is developing new systems for evaluating the impact of its funded projects, as part of its aim to demonstrate the effectiveness of digital approaches to vocational learning. As part of this, we will be working with each project to define objectives.

The objectives will be specific and relevant to the project and will include a mix of short term outputs and long term outcomes. Outputs will be tailored to measure the project activities; and outcomes will be tailored to reflect the direction and end point of the project.

Impact could include the number of learners benefitting, tackling a specific unmet need in an industry or group of learners or stimulating and supporting long term change in some part of the vocational learning sector that leads to the uptake and adoption of new ways of learning.

The scope and form of objectives and evaluation will be determined between the project and its Ufi Project Manager at the outset and set out in the Project Initiation Document (PID) which forms the basis of the funding agreement.
