Wider outcomes planning and capture tool
Wider outcomes are becoming increasingly significant in the measuring of impact and commissioning of services. NIACE has developed this tool to support learning providers to recognise and capture the wider outcomes of adult learning. It has been designed to be user-friendly and is based on NIACE’s detailed national research. The tool gives learning providers a focused and consistent way of planning and capturing the outcomes. It is not constrictive and is designed to be flexible to meet local needs and circumstances.NIACE is encouraging and supporting learning providers to use the tool and build it into their practice in order to develop a substantial, coherent national evidence base. On a local level, it will support providers to demonstrate the difference they make across a range of agendas and can supplement existing quality improvement arrangements.
