|About the Masters Award|
The Masters in Monitoring and Evaluation Award is a rigorous qualification in the Monitoring and Evaluation field. The qualification represents the pinnacle of achievement in this area and is achieved through completion of a number of nine core modules plus three electives. The learning comprises a mixture of online learning, one on one tutor sessions (online or face to face) and attendance at a minimum of three learning events hosted over the Masters Award programme. Where the participant location makes it impossible to attend in person, we have technology which enables attendance via a virtual classroom.
It would normally be expected that participants hold the Advanced Diploma in Monitoring and Evaluation. In exceptional cases, after a review of academic and secular achievements, individuals may be accepted on the next intake as a direct entry on a case by case basis.
The core modules within the Masters Award comprise:
- Strategic Perspecitves for Monitoring and Evaluation
- Qualitative and Quantitative Analysis tools and techniques
- Emerging trends within Monitoring and Evaluation
- Project and Programme management for Monitoring and Evaluation
- Financial skills for Monitoring and Evaluation Practitioners
- The cultural paradigm
- Communication and Reporting
- Procurement Management for Monitoring and Evaluation
- Benefits Management and Realisation
Electives are currently available within the following areas (please note that these are subject to ongoing review and other options may become available):
- Monitoring and Evaluation and Blockchain
- Renewable technologies
- Social tools for Monitoring and Evaluation
- Proposal writing and review for Monitoring and Evaluation
- Legal Awareness for Monitoring and Evaluation
The final part of the award requires completion of a project that will be agreed in advance with your tutor.
Participants normally complete the Masters Award within 18 months of commencement.
