Report from the National Evaluation team (TIHR and Shared Intelligence) who used a ‘Theory of Change’ framework to evaluate the Skilled for Health at programme, project and individual level.
Skilled for Health is a national programme jointly funded by the Department of Health (DH) and Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills (DIUS) and managed by the community learning charity ContinYou in a strategic partnership with the two departments. It aims to engage people with skills for life needs in learning in order to improve their health literacy and their language, literacy and numeracy. Skilled for Health supports the cross cutting objective of reducing health inequalities as well as improving Skills for Life in the adult population of England. But it allows considerable flexibility in individual project design to reflect differing organisational and/or local objectives and diverse target groups of participants.
