Internal Evaluation for Quality Improvements
This is a practical, professional development opportunity focusing on ERO’s approach to internal evaluation. Aimed at all who work with young children in Early Childhood Education (ECE), this workshop will take you through some practical examples and the Childspace framework for internal evaluation for strategic, regular or emergent purposes. You will be supported to begin designing an evaluation on a policy, programme, or an area of practice, suited to your centre’s needs. There will be time to discuss some of the challenges of internal evaluation and tips and tricks for successful internal evaluations and evaluative team cultures. Through this you will gain a greater understanding of the purposes, process and practice of internal evaluation. You will leave this workshop feeling confident to support your team towards ensuring internal evaluation leads to continuous quality improvements that support positive learning outcomes for all ākonga/learners.
