This page is a summary of the collaboration between Skills Enterprise and UCL postgraduate students and researchers through the Evaluation Exchange.
Skills Enterprise supports vulnerable and marginalized residents, helping them to develop skills and secure suitable employment. Their interventions and support covers: Crisis support, skills building, getting job ready, community cohesion and volunteering.
How we worked with the Evaluation Exchange
The team worked together to develop a set of surveys for Skills Enterprise to evaluate the four core service areas outlined in their Theory of Change: welfare, community cohesion, digital skills, and employability. They developed a 'Welcome Pack' designed for all service users to complete at the start of their journey with the organisation and at various stages following this.
Legacy for Skills Enterprise
The team have developed a useful outcome measurement tool that will enable the organisation to build common strategies to increase its impact and identify where new approaches need to be built.
