Final call for our next training: ‘Doing things differently’

6 February 2020

Do you work in complex and conflict-affected contexts? Are you looking for a way to make monitoring, evaluation and learning (MEL) a collective enterprise that allows you and your partners to adapt? Would you like to collect better data – data that reflects the focus you have on changing practice, behaviour and relationships?

Saferworld is offering a workshop to share our MEL approach. Designed and developed over seven years, we have embedded the method in all Saferworld programmes and use it successfully to advocate for change. Workshops cover the basic aspects of developing and using an outcome-focused monitoring and learning system and provide insights and practical tips for putting such a system in place.

This workshop is useful for all those who have ever struggled with MEL concepts and practice, and would like to do things a bit differently.

Feedback from participants at the previous training

“I enjoyed how interactive and practical the sessions were and the simple, straightforward - but powerful - concepts you introduced.”

“The hands-on experience of doing outcome harvesting, using real life examples and the opportunity to ask honest questions was fantastic.”

Date, time and venue

The one-day training workshop will take place on Wednesday, 26 February 2020, 9:00-17:00, at The Artworks Classrooms, 60a Weston Street, London, SE1 3QJ.


Staff of organisations with >£3 million spend: £300 per person

Staff of organisations with £1-3 million spend: £200 per person

Staff of organisations with <£1 million spend: £150 per person


We want to build participants’ practical experience of outcome monitoring and harvesting, so that they:

  • can understand the thinking behind the approach and its value for adaptive programming, organisational learning and mutual accountability
  • can identify when it is appropriate to use this method
  • are able to apply the steps and principles of the method using practical examples of their own.


The workshop will be interactive and participatory, with a strong focus on exercises and group work. Practical examples from the participants and facilitator(s) will be used to explore the approach for different contexts.

Who should attend?

The workshop is intended for those managing projects and programmes in complex environments with some experience of monitoring and evaluation. However, newcomers to the field are always welcome.
