Monitoring for learning

Tools and approaches for projects’ and programmes’ monitoring

Monitoring for learning_slider

Corso di formazione internazionale su strumenti e approcci per il monitoraggio di progetti e programmi. Il corso, in lingua inglese, si svolge in forma di laboratorio ed è aperto a coordinatori di progetti e programmi di ong italiane ed europee, e allo staff delle controparti locali nei paesi terzi, privilegiando una partecipazione di coppia

Learning objectives:

After the training participants:

  • can apply tools and frameworks for monitoring projects and programmes with a focus on the learning opportunities
  • know the difference between different monitoring tools and know when to apply which one
  • have the tools for allowing to work more equally in partnership


The workshop is an opportunity for participants to immerse themselves in an intense learning process of 4,5 days. An important characteristic of this training is that it combines theory and hands-on practice. Participants will try out and translate the learnt content immediately for their own organisation during the workshop. The training is residential and English will be the working language.


The workshop targets Italian and European NGOs, more specifically decision-makers and leading officers, project and programme coordinators and staff abroad responsible for or involved in the management of project or programmes. It is preferred that participation takes place in “pairs” i.e. a headquarters based staff member together with a staff member of the NGO or a local partner. To facilitate the participation of the NGOs’ local partners, ICC will cover full board and lodging costs during the training and apply a reduced participation fee.

Participants prerequisites Knowledge of project management is preferable. Good knowledge of English is required.
