Evaluation and Learning for Uniting the Movement
Visit our evaluation and learning web page to read our new approach and action plan, Evaluation and Learning for Uniting the Movement, which sets the direction for how evaluation and learning can support our strategy. We’re working on a range of actions and resources to support this new approach. Keep an eye on our web page for more info. You can also view our library of completed evaluation reports and resources from a range of investments, programmes and campaigns.
You can still access our full Evaluation Framework and all its resources. Please be aware that the framework is a legacy of a previous strategy, and may not represent current ways of working.
Our Evaluation Framework
Our Evaluation Framework will help you design and deliver an effective evaluation for your sport and physical activity project.
It provides easy-to-follow guidance and resources that you can use or adapt alongside your own tools to develop the right approach for you.
The Framework is based on three phases - Design, Implementation, and Learning. Within these are six steps to help you build measurement and evaluation into your project from the very start, and throughout. Begin Step 1 as soon as you start designing your project.
Involve other relevant colleagues who work on project development or delivery, and incorporate the processes and principles into your own systems, ensuring they are compatible and proportionate for your project. Review and reflect on your progress throughout.
