Monitoring and Evaluation Diploma

Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) is an essential component of any program, intervention, or project operating in a dynamic environment that requires tools that facilitate evidence-based decision-making. This three-module diploma aims to equip learners with the critical knowledge and skillset needed to design and implement M&E systems.

  • Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) is an essential component of any program, intervention, or project operating in a dynamic environment that requires tools that facilitate evidence-based decision-making. This three-module diploma aims to equip learners with the critical knowledge and skillset needed to design and implement (M&E) systems. The diploma is designed in alignment with international standards for monitoring and evaluation, namely, the American Evaluation Association (AEA) guiding principles for evaluators and the United Nations Evaluation Group (UNEG) core competencies for evaluators of the UN System. The program will blend planning and project management principles with skill development concerning evaluation study design, developing monitoring and evaluation frameworks, data collection and analysis, and IT's changing role. Special focus will be given to professional practice and balancing an evaluation's ethical aspects. The program contains three modules.
