Project Management and Programme Design and Evaluation

Organisations grow when new ideas and processes are brought to fruition.  Project design and management skills are necessary to efficiently and effectually transition from idea to profitable enterprise; project evaluation skills are necessary to ensure that organisations learn from their mistakes and improve processes for the future.  Our courses are structured to present the more contemporary perspectives and techniques in the three key areas of project design, management, in the interest of ensuring that graduates become invaluable project members/leaders in their respective organisations.

Program Evaluation

Program Evaluation

In the Caribbean region and the world, much attention is paid to the development of economic and social programmes to effect societal, business and human development.  Yet, too little attention is given to measuring the effectiveness of implemented programmes.  Specialists in this rapidly growing field are in high demand, and this course is designed to provide you with an understanding of what is involved in designing a programme evaluation. You will be exposed to various evaluation frameworks and designs, and explore the purposes associated with different types of evaluation.  The communication of evaluation findings will also form part of the course material.
