About this event

About the session

This session in one of a pair, designed to teach techniques to plan and improve social programmes by ensuring that developed interventions are associated with the goals they seek to achieve and that these linkages between interventions and desired goals are plausible

On Tuesday, August 9, participants will learn the process of programme logic modelling, a technique that ensures the effort and money spent on social programmes are justified and therefore increase the chances of organisations obtaining the funding they need to create and run programmes.

Information on the second session in the series, Process Analysis: Using Project Planning to Improve Your Programme on August 16 here.
