Monitoring And Evaluation


Short Course


2 Months


Course Overview

Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) is an essential component of any intervention, project, or program. In this course, you will learn how successful projects plan for data collection, management, analysis, and use. In order to measure success and report on results, development workers and public sector managers create monitoring and evaluation systems. Systems that allow extracting lessons learned from the experience to support ultimately organizational learning. Learning to improve, but more importantly to improve programme and project performance. In this context, monitoring and evaluation becomes an essential function to root in organisations, programmes and projects. This is why international organisations, as well as those in the public sector, have been investing for several years in the creation of structures responsible for monitoring and evaluation. In order to specialize on a profession that is on demand, BCMHS offers you a weekend programme course that provides you with all the technical skills and tools required to ensure effective monitoring of projects and programmes, but also to manage the different evaluations that are part of the programming cycle.
