Welcome to the Sport England evaluation framework
Update September 2021: We’re busy updating our approach to Evaluation and Learning to support our new strategy Uniting the Movement. We’ll continue to use and promote the most useful tools and resources from this framework, alongside brand new ones and new ways of working too. So please look out for our new Evaluation and Learning Approach, which we hope to share in October 2021.
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.
