Measuring the impact

It is part of your ULF contract to report on your project’s activities and progress. Having robust monitoring systems to capture and record information enables you to do this effectively.

Collecting and sharing evidence of the impact of your project can help to show the wider union the benefits of the learning agenda, help in negotiations with employers or providers, as well as inspiring other members and non-members to want to engage in learning.

You'll be asking a range of people to collect information for you. If you can, involve those people in designing how best to capture the information that is needed.

Ensure everyone understands what they need to capture, how it will be used, when they need to capture it and to whom it should be sent. People like – and need – to understand how they fit in the scheme of things and to know they’re playing an important part.
