Build the knowledge, skills and confidence in monitoring & evaluation, to make your best contribution to outcomes for your organisation and your community.

Capability enables impact

Positive outcomes don’t occur by accident – they are achieved using knowledge, skill and experience. Lirata’s training and mentoring programs equip social justice workers and leaders with the capabilities needed to achieve results.

Training for effective Monitoring, Evaluation & Learning (MEL)

Monitoring, Evaluation & Learning provide key insights, enabling social purpose organisations to become more effective in achieving their goals. Our practical training modules explain MEL concepts in plain language, and help you apply them to your own context. We guide you step by step through key MEL processes using real-world examples.

Please visit our Events page for details of upcoming trainings. We also offer this training in-house for organisations and individuals, so you can access evaluation learning when you need it, with support to apply it to your own projects or programs. Contact us for details and a customised quote.

Mentoring in Monitoring, Evaluation & Learning

Our in-depth MEL mentoring provides tailored guidance, helping you deepen your knowledge and skills as you apply MEL techniques in your day-to-day work. Through our mentoring program you will receive flexible trouble-shooting support, gain detailed feedback on draft documents and tools, and access expert implementation advice. We provide mentoring online or onsite, for individuals or teams, at times that suit your schedule. You can purchase mentoring as an add-on to training, or contact us for a custom quote.

Training for managers

Skilled managers make an enormous difference to an organisation’s sustainability and effectiveness. We assist with training for your management team in communication, planning, managing staff, managing change, and more. Please contact us to discuss in-house training for your organisation.

Reflective dialogue for transformational learning
Reflective dialogue is a practice that supports leaders and their teams to embrace learning, to give and receive fearless feedback, and to move beyond continuous improvement to innovation and growth. In this article, Lirata CEO, Maria Brett, explores single and double loop learning and considers the benefits – and limitations - of single loop learning, and the opportunities presented by reflective dialogue for leaders who want to learn more deeply.
