Demonstrating the impact of our work in schools, colleges and settngs on individual children and young people with sensory impairment is a real challenge. 

It is a necessity both for understanding and improving our own practice and so that we can provide well‐founded information for those who are paying for our services.

This workshop use a case study approach to examine what we mean by impact and how we might go about gathering evidence.

By the end of the day you will have:

  • Explored what is meant by impact in your context
  • Mapped out the journey leading to impact on a child or young person’s wellbeing, participation and achievement
  • Identified your own priorities for measuring impact
  • Developed some evaluation strategies.

We will be using case studies that you identify from you own practice to support these outcomes.

Cost:

The cost for the day is £50/delegate reduced to £25/delegate for NatSIP-affiliated organisations, including refreshments and lunch.
