Formative evaluation designed to help NESTA gain an understanding of it’s Learning Programme.
The extent to which the Learning Programme informs and challenges current policy and practice in learning;
the contribution it makes to promoting innovation in learning policy and practice;
what impact the programme has (on ‘beneficiaries’ – i.e. teachers and learners – on policy makers and on deepening and expanding the knowledge base in learning e.g. in the practitioner community); and
whether the way the programme is managed is ‘fit for purpose’ (e.g. selection of particular projects for funding; monitoring of the projects).
