  • INTRAC: Theory of Change for Planning and Impact Assessment
    International NGO Training and Research Centre (INTRAC)

    The International NGO Training and Research Centre (INTRAC) exists to support and strengthen civil society. INTRAC seeks to increase the effectiveness of civil society organisations (CSOs) in all parts of the world. Civil society is key to establishing democratic societies and CSOs play a key role in promoting sustainable development in a just society. 

    INTRAC is conducting a course on Theory of Change for Planning and Impact Assessment from 17-21 October 2016 in Oxford, United Kingdom.

    Interest in developing and using Theories of Change both for planning and assessing impact has grown rapidly over the last few years. Theories of Change can be set at different levels and are being used in a number of ways. At one end of the scale, they are pulled together by one person to support a programme proposal or a specific donor demand. At the other end, they are facilitated over a period of several months and include wide consultation with staff, partners and beneficiaries, and are used to inform strategy at all levels. As Theories of Change focus specifically on sequences of change for different target groups, they provide a clear and robust framework for monitoring and assessing the impact of our development efforts.

    This course introduces the elements of Theory of Change and offers the opportunity for participants to apply and experiment with the key ideas and processes using their own case studies as well as illustrative case studies presented by the course facilitator.
