About this event

Practical training to help boost your impact

Program Logic and Theory of Change are powerful tools for building effective services and social justice initiatives. We’ve assisted organisations large and small, across many health and community services sectors, to use these tools to design robust projects and programs, clearly articulate their outcomes, and measure the effectiveness of their work.

Now, for the first time, we are taking our tried and tested capability building workshops online, and opening them up to anyone who works in a social purpose organisation.

Participants in our interactive workshops will use real projects or programs as working examples, with a strong focus on ‘learning by doing’. Our facilitators guide participants through Lirata’s practical processes to develop a Program Logic and a Theory of Change. Drawing on our extensive experience, we will demystify concepts, help participants apply them to their own contexts, and provide clear templates and guidelines for use after the training.

This module is delivered over two half-day sessions. After completing this module participants will:

  • Be able to articulate the key concepts of program logic and theory of change, and the differences between them
  • Be able to confidently read, understand, and identify the various elements of a program logic and theory of change
  • Have developed a draft program logic for a program or project
  • Have developed a draft theory of change for a program or project
  • Be able to design a participatory process to develop a program logic or theory of change
  • Take away a practical template and supporting resources to help them develop program logic and theory of change in future.

“Fantastic facilitators - very experienced and informed. Patient too! Showed good relationships between Program Logic/Theory of Change and project management”
