This report is the first of its kind to look at training evaluation within the public health supply chain. It emerged from an expressed need by the PtD Board to improve the evaluation of training and development activities with less reliance on training intervention outputs (i.e. the number of individuals trained), towards documenting the outcomes and impacts of training activities leading to improvement in health service delivery.
The report is focused on the development of high level organisational impact indicators to be incorporated into PtD’s training strategy methodology, linking training to productivity or improved business and operational performance. It is intended to link the indicators to the PtD Theory of Change which articulates increased supply chain performance in order to assess whether the training activity is achieving this.
