Interests: Monitoring and Evaluation
If it is not measured, it is not managed (Drucker, 1954) Billions of Rands are wasted year after year as a result of ill-monitored projects, creating a need for a programme that will equip individuals with the tools to manage their projects better, learn from mistakes and intervene before it is too late. Monitoring and Evaluation is increasingly recognized as the cornerstone for effective program management and is critical for organizational sustainability. A continuously increasing need for suitably skilled monitoring and evaluation project managers has been identified as a priority area by various stakeholders active in different sectors and industries; e.g. globally-funded sponsorships often require evidence of effective monitoring and evaluation systems prior to awarding funds.
The purpose of the Advanced Certificate (Monitoring and Evaluation) is to equip managers and M&E officers across a variety of sectors with the knowledge and skills to successfully design and implement sound monitoring and evaluation systems from program/project initiation to close-out.
This programme is structured in such a way that it guides learners to apply monitoring and evaluation principles within the context of their unique work environment.
Any individual that is presently operating in a Monitoring and Evaluation Role who has identified a need to further develop their monitoring and evaluation knowledge and skills, additional to their current vocational focus; e.g. a manager whose performance agreement demands the effective design and management of monitoring and evaluation systems for a program or organization.
The program has been designed to allow students to learn in the following ways:
Module 1: Introduction to M&E Principles and Concepts
Module 2: Evaluation of Projects and Programmes
Module 3: Designing program monitoring systems
