Evaluators' Professional Learning Competency Framework
Published in 2013, the purpose of the Evaluators' Professional Learning Competency Framework is to guide and support members and other interested parties to enhance their evaluation knowledge and expertise.
The Framework contributes to the AES objective of improving the quality of evaluation practice in Australasia and is, therefore, available for download and to inform the work of evaluation professionals.
Process for setting up a new AES workshop
The aim of AES is to "improve the theory, practice and use of evaluation".
Workshops typically address needs that are important and can be provided to as wide a section of the membership, adn other stakeholders, as possible. The AES staff, in conjunction with regional networks, organise workshops to meet particular local needs or to take advantage of expertise offered by visiting evaluators. The focus is on providing opportunities for members to benefit from the training as well as raising the profile of the AES in the various regions.
