In this webinar we will take you through our new guide ‘ How good is my evidence? A guide to assessing the quality of self-evaluation evidence’

Who is this for?

This webinar is for staff and volunteers in third sector organisations based in Scotland, who feel fairly confident with collecting, analysing and reporting on outcomes, but who want to take a step back and make their evidence even better.

We will ask you to take stock of the information that you collect, so that you are ready to reflect on how good your evidence is.

In this session we will discuss:

  • Why evidence is important
  • What we mean by self-evaluation evidence
  • The principles behind ‘good enough’ evidence for different purposes

We will then take you through 5 sets of questions; ask you to give yourself a score and think about ways you can strengthen your evidence. We will finish with some examples of things you can do to improve your evidence

Please note that this webinar will be largely based on presentation with space for reflection after each set of questions. We will have a couple of break out spaces, but may not have time to discuss your particular challenge.


We will be running this event via Zoom video conferencing. You will need a stable internet connect, webcam and microphone.


This session is free to attend but booking is required as places are limited. Please book a place using the form below.
