Introduction to the course

In order to measure success and report on results, development workers and public sector managers create monitoring and evaluation systems. Systems that allow extracting lessons learned from the experience to support ultimately organizational learning. Learning to improve, but more importantly to improve programme and project performance. In this context, monitoring and evaluation becomes an essential function to root in organisations, programmes and projects. This is why international organisations, as well as those in the public sector, have been investing for several years in the creation of structures responsible for monitoring and evaluation. In order to specialize on a profession that is on demand, the ITC-ILO offers you an online certification programme that provides you with all the technical skills and tools required to ensure effective monitoring of projects and programmes, but also to manage the different evaluations that are part of the programming cycle.

Who attends this course?

Monitoring and evaluation specialists; project coordinators; programme managers; independent evaluators; donor staff appraising and evaluating projects and programmes; non-governmental organization officials involved in monitoring and evaluating.
