Evaluators Professional Learning Competency Framework

Published in 2013, the purpose of the framework is to guide and support members and other interested parties to enhance their evaluation knowledge and expertise. 

A competent evaluator brings together a variety of knowledge and skills within an overarching frame of an evaluative attitude and professional practice, for conducting evaluation activities. The AES Evaluators Professional Learning Competency Framework outlines the various domains of those competencies and how they relate to each other.
