Monitoring and Evaluation is a wide field and its practical implementation means data collection on indicators, analysis and reporting in order to inform the project implementers on the level of achievement of results.
This often means there must be somebody responsible for indicator data collection, data collation, data manipulation and analysis at all times as the project is under implementation. Technical skills such as M&E Survey Design, Sampling Methodology, Data Collection Techniques, Data Analysis and Interpretation become inevitable on the part of the staff responsible for these tasks. This training is designed to impart in participants the practical skills of M&E survey process management – as a buildup training to the PMEAL Module.

Training Objectives:
1. To introduce participants to fundamental statistical skills for M&E data
2. To impart practical skills of M&E survey design and process management
3. To explore quantitative & qualitative M&E data collection methods and tools
4. To build participants’ skills in mobile data collection for M&E surveys
5. To introduce participants to quantitative analytical techniques for M&E surveys
6. To explore qualitative data management techniques for qualitative evaluations

Who Should Attend this training
Participants should note that this is a build-up course on the PMEAL training and it is 80 percent practical.
This training is suitable for those already knowledgeable in theoretical basics of M&E. Participants must have attended PMEAL training with us or elsewhere before registering for this Module.
The training is particularly suitable for M&E Managers and/or junior officers responsible for M&E implementation in the project/programme. It is also a recommended training for project managers, researchers, quality assurance officers, and graduate/post-graduate students currently undertaking M&E courses at a University, among others.
