Cattanach Dads Projects Meeting Q3

Cattanach Dads Projects Meeting Q3


This full day event will be split into two parts.

The morning will be lead by Evaluation Support Scotland, who's training was a particularly well received last year. They will provide a refresher of what we learnt last year and then build on the theory to develop evaluation which is useful to you and Cattanach.

In the afternoon we will be joined by 'Ask Dad' lead Mark Hunter from Fast Forward. The group will have a chance to discuss risk taking behaviour the effects on children and how to talk to dads about it.

To round up the day you will have a chance to reflect on any challenges that you face with your dads work and use the group to find solutions.

  1. Be able to identify simple indicators or measures that will let them know if they are achieving their outcomes
  2. Understand the steps and principles to follow when choosing or developing methods for their evaluation
  3. Identify evaluation methods that are relevant and meaningful to their project activities and service-users
  4. Understand how to report on the achievement of project outcomes to funders

Ask Dad Workshops - Participants will:
