Measurement and Evaluation

Evidence that what we are doing works, is providing value for money for our precious funders and critically, has long term sustainable benefits for all those individuals whether still serving or veterans, who engage with us.

We are hugely indebted to Professor Zoe Morrison of the University of Greenwich for her generous and continued involvement with our Monitoring and Evaluation.

She has developed pre and post-Rural Week questionnaires which form the basis of our M&E and Zoe analyses the data we capture from these on an annual basis as an ongoing means of evidencing and improving our Rural Weeks programme.

HighGround and Bicton College have developed a Quality Framework which our Course Manager who is present throughout the Rural Week completes and sends to Bicton after every Rural Week. This enables us to score all speakers, presentations, accommodation and Safeguarding and make ongoing improvements to the Rural Weeks programme following feedback from our participants.

HighGround follows up with all Rural Week participants seven days after the end of the Rural Week (follow-up Friday) to plan next goals, and our ongoing support service is constantly being developed and improved as each individual’s communication and support requirements vary according to what stage in their employment journey they are at.
