IMPACT Bursaries Programme

On Wednesday 31 January 2018 we launch the Sound Connections IMPACT Programme, designed to support individuals and organisations to develop evaluation and impact measurement capacity, skills and tools.

Evaluation and impact is a hot topic; it is important for improving our work, creating better outcomes for the children and young people we work with, and making a strong case for music education and opportunities. Nonetheless music, arts and youth organisations often battle with limited capacity and resource, and struggle to find evaluation methods and tools that are efficient but effective. Different funders require different types reporting and juggling multiple requirements can be challenging.

It is with this in mind that at the heart of the IMPACT programme is the opportunity to apply for a training and development bursary. Every project and organisation’s needs are different, so the bursaries can be used to find the most appropriate support for you – this is about personalised learning rather than one size fits all.

What is on offer?

  • Bursaries of up to £600 in support of developing your impact measurement skills, practice and tools
  • Advice and guidance, including connecting you with experts with skills and experience relevant to your needs

What types of activity can the bursaries support?

Activities relating directly to developing impact measurement skills, practice and tools, e.g:

Activities linked, but not directly related, to impact measurement, e.g:

  • Needs analysis and mapping
  • Consultation with participants

These are just examples, so come along to Rich Mix at 9.00 – 11.00 am on Wednesday 31 January to find out more about the programme and bursary application process at our launch breakfast.
