The What Works Centre for Local Economic Growth and New Economy Manchester are working with local authority partners around the country to host a new series of free, full-day workshops. Using Greater Manchester’s ‘evidence life cycle’ as a framework, these sessions use local policy issues to work through the evaluation process with local authority practitioners. The workshop examines how to:
- define the intervention
- develop a logic model for the intervention
- develop a Cost Benefit Analysis Model
- effectively evaluate the intervention
More rigorous evaluation not only helps to improve cost-effectiveness, but is likely to play a key role in the negotiation of significant devolution deals with central government. This session will help local areas to develop their evidence and evaluation frameworks to meet both these objectives.
If you would like to host a workshop for up to ten people at your local authority, don’t hesitate to get in touch with Simon Jeffrey via firstname.lastname@example.org.
