We are postponing this course and are not taking applications for the moment. This course is relatively new and is undergoing a review process. We will post an update once we have decided how and when the Theory of Change course will be run in the future.
INTRAC is continuing to run our popular tailor-made training courses on Theory of Change. If you are interested in exploring a tailor-made option for your organisation, please email Paula Haddock (Training Manager) or call 01865 263055.

There has been a recent upsurge of interest in Theories of Change. Donors are increasingly requiring grantees to provide ToCs to accompany their proposals. Those organisations who have already developed a Theory of Change have found that the process and the product can provide greater clarity for communication, planning and M&E; enhance partner relationships and support organisational development.
This new course gives participants a solid understanding of what Theories of Change are; how they complement other planning processes; and how they can be applied to organisations and to programmes. The course will build participants’ skills in developing a Theory of Change for their own organization or programme, and offers an opportunity to experiment with developing elements of a Theory of Change.
In order to support the application of learning to the workplace, we encourage organisations to consider sending more than one participant.
Objectives of the course
At the end of the course, participants will:
- Be able to describe what Theories of Change involve and include and the rationale for using them
- Be able to identify how and when they should be developed and how they inform and complement other
planning and M&E tools
- Have increased confidence in working through the steps and processes involved in developing Theories of Change
- Have experimented with developing elements of a Theory of Change
- Have explored ways to promote and develop robust Theories of Change within their own organisation and have developed an action plan for applying the learning
This course is suitable for senior programme managers and those involved in the design and implementation of M&E and Impact Assessment.
