A 2.5-hour workshop designed to help people working in local economic growth use logic models effectively.
Logic models are used commonly in bid writing, for example in the Levelling Up Fund submission. Logic models are a process to help test assumptions, evaluate project progress and communicate a project’s narrative. This training is designed to help people working in local economic growth use logic models more effectively at every stage; from shortlisting projects to presenting to decision makers and conducting reviews.
What sort of training is this?
- It’s a short interactive workshop with a mix of presentations and practical exercises to review logic models in policy design and delivery.
Who should attend?
- People working in local authorities, combined authorities and LEPs.
- This training is ideal for beginners – no experience of working with logic models is required, although the content is still relevant for those with some experience.
- We encourage you to attend with your colleagues.
- If you’re not attending with colleagues, we’ll buddy you up with a group for follow-up support.
How do I prepare?
- If you are attending with two or more colleagues, come with a current or potential project in mind that you want to use as a real-world example.
- Other attendees will be able to choose from a set of example scenarios – no prep work required!
What happens once I’ve signed up?
- You will receive a link to join the workshop three days in advance.
- We’ll send you resources you’ll need for the exercises shortly before the workshop. You can access these online or print them out.
- If you’re worried you haven’t received these emails, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
What happens after the workshop?
- We’re keen to help you implement what you’ve learned in your day-to-day. We offer support after the course to attendees including; resources you can share with colleagues; opportunities to share progress with local government officers in organisations like yours and; additional activities such as ‘refresher’ sessions.
