Twende is searching for a Lead Consultant to conduct a diagnostic of the supply and demand of Evaluators in South Africa.
The Diagnostic of Evaluators falls under Output 3, to Increase Learning in Africa on strengthening national evaluation systems. The diagnostic of supply and demand of evaluators seeks to provide a country-specific demand-and-supply profile of evaluators in each of the three partner countries in the Twende Mbele project: Benin, Uganda and South Africa. The study will answer questions around the capacity and supply of evaluators on the continent, and what is required to strengthen this capacity and supply?
All proposals should include consultant’s CV, a detailed proposal and an example of previous, similar work.
Please email proposals to the Twende Programme Manager at email@example.com by Monday 18th September.
Only shortlisted applicants will be contacted.
Writing from the recent Winter School course in Johannesburg, Elizabeth Asiimwe from Uganda gives us her thoughts on a core part of the curriculum: Made in Africa Evaluation.
Dans la perspective d’améliorer les services publics rendus aux populations, le Gouvernement de l’Afrique du Sud a établi une coopération pour obtenir des résultats significatifs. Ainsi, un outil novateur d’évaluation de la performance et de la gestion a été développé. Inspiré du modèle canadien, cet outil est dénommé « le Management Performance Assessment Tool (MPAT) » et est mis en œuvre depuis 2009.
Does monitoring and evaluation seem too technical? Are you grappling with logframes and indicators that don’t adequately tell the story of your programme?
A Theory of Change (ToC) approach can help you situate complex social and development interventions. It is both a process and a product for explaining the various contributors to change, and the multiple levels of outcomes that result from programme implementation.
This course will provide public and development managers, monitoring and evaluation practitioners, donor agencies, NGOs, academics, and other stakeholders with a toolkit to interrogate the process of change that they are engaged in.
The course will introduce you to theory of change approaches and principles.
It will give you the tools to both understand existing theories of change, and develop your own.
This course will run from 1-19 November 2017. Register at edX.org
