Now that your programme is complete, you could evaluate the final elements of the programme, or the programme as a whole.

You will have already designed your programme evaluation and possibly established a baseline to compare against and surveyed participants after the initial intervention.

If your evaluation design includes pre- and post- intervention evaluation methods, this is a good moment to establish whether the second intervention, or the whole intervention, as part of your programme has been effective1.

The evaluation you do at this point can be compared against the baseline you have already established, and the earlier post-intervention survey, to see if your participants’ awareness, skills or understanding has changed.

The earlier guide on creating pre- and post- intervention surveys explains areas you could to evaluate.

You should use the final results and any analysis you undertake to inform future rounds of the programme. You may also want to publish a final evaluation report.

  1. If you are following the same format as our case study – a two-part programme, with speed mentoring followed by long-term mentoring – the “second intervention” is the long-term mentoring part of your programme. The “whole intervention” is the combination of speed mentoring and long-term mentoring.
