Would you like to know whether your public engagement activity is effective?
Public engagement evaluation course introduces you to the process of public engagement evaluation, available tools and practical guidance about how to gather accurate evaluation data.
It offers flexible 24-40 hours of training which means it was organized to be completed at your own pace, with each Module comprising 5-10 hours of learning tasks and activities.

The AHRC Engaging with Government programme is a three day course which will take place in March 2016 and is designed to provide an insight into the policy making process, and help participants develop the skills needed to pursue the policy implications of their research. It also aims to build links between policy makers and the most dynamic new research in the arts and humanities. AHRC are inviting eligible researchers to submit an application to attend the course.
The programme will:
- Encourage you to see opportunities where your own research could make a valuable contribution in a public policy context;
- Challenge you to think in more depth about the policy process, and the role of research within it;
- Increase the influencing and communication skills that you need to achieve this.
The programme is for early career researchers (ECRs) and is open to ECRs working in any area of the AHRC’s subject domain. At the point of application, applicants must be either within eight years of the award of their doctorate or equivalent professional training, or within six years of their first academic appointment.
In addition, applicants must be employed in a full- or part-time postdoctoral or equivalent position, which may be either fixed term or permanent, and which lists academic research as one of its main responsibilities. Applicants must be in post at the time of application, and the position must extend beyond the delivery of the ‘Engaging with Government’ course in March 2016. Further, the position must be held at a research organisation which is eligible to apply to the AHRC.
The course will be held at the Institute for Government Offices in central London on 8, 9, and 10 March and applicants will need to commit to attending all three days in full. The costs of the course, accommodation, travel, and subsistence will be paid for according to AHRC’s standard terms and conditions.
