Organisations in the not-for-profit sector are increasingly being asked to provide evidence for the approaches that they use in their work or for particular programmes. This can be vital for funding and other supports. This course teaches participants how to use modern research techniques to develop an evidence base for their work. The course will also equip you to use this research to implement changes to existing programmes based on the research evidence.
The Certificate in Project Management and Implementation Science is an applied programme aimed at supporting managers in non-profit organisations to identify and introduce evidence based approaches and to use the latest research techniques to support their work. You will learn the factors that impede the use of evidence-based practices and gain an understanding of how to overcome these factors using project management principles. In a world where solid research evidence is required from organisations and leaders in the sector this programme will give you the skills to provide that.
Who is the course for?

The course is targeted at senior managers and staff who are responsible for service delivery.
