Evaluation – The Endorsed Trainers Pilot Project

Project Overview

In 2018, Our Watch commenced the Endorsed Trainers Pilot Project with the aim of increasing the capacity of the prevention workforce nationally. The pilot was designed to help Our Watch move away from direct delivery of training and instead partner with organisational and independent trainers to deliver Our Watch training packages, including Putting the prevention of violence against women into practice: How to Change the story and Workplace Equality and Respect. Through this model, Our Watch supported appropriately qualified practitioners to become Our Watch ‘endorsed trainers’ by providing a two-day training program and ongoing support to deliver either one or both of these two training packages.

I was fortunate enough to work closely with Our Watch throughout the pilot and carry out a developmental evaluation while being immersed in the team. This was a comprehensive evaluation for internal use which drew on a range of data sources and captured key learnings to inform ongoing prevention workforce planning at Our Watch.

Our Watch
Flexible, empowering, thorough and considered

I had the privilege of working closely with Louise throughout the Our Watch Endorsed Trainers pilot. Louise was key to all stages of the project - developing the Evaluation Plan and the evaluation tools and methodology; undertaking focus groups and interviews with key stakeholders with sensitivity and care; providing ongoing evaluation expertise, advice and support and developing a comprehensive Evaluation Report with deeply considered analysis, findings and recommendations. Her approach is flexible, empowering, thorough and considered. It was an absolute joy to work with Louise and I would recommend her to anyone.
