Learning Programme Evaluator

£4,000, including all fees, travel expenses, materials and other out of pocket expenses
Freelance until March 2024

We require an external evaluator to create a robust evaluation framework that we can use during this project and in the long term.  The framework will enable us to develop new sessions during the testing period and capture their impact.  The evaluation will include formative and summative evaluation, allowing us to make changes during the project to ensure maximum impact, and will generate a final report to circulate to stakeholders and funders.

Participatory research will be embedded, and evaluation methods will be inclusive and accessible ensuring everyone can participate.  Evaluation methods and templates will be designed to be used beyond the project, for PHM staff to continue to monitor the impact of new programmes developed.  We expect an evaluator to apply varied evaluation methods, mapping high quality data from different sources.  New, creative methods of capturing evaluation from all stakeholders will be of great interest.

The evaluation will:

  • Assess the extent to which the project is meeting its objectives set out above, offering recommendations for change during project delivery;
  • Provide evaluation training to PHM staff where appropriate to facilitate iterative evaluation;
  • Ensure that data and learnings are shared in a timely way to enable prompt action where necessary;
  • Ensure that evaluation data and learnings are presented in a way that is accessible to the widest audiences;
  • Work closely with PHM’s Programme & Engagement Manager to agree evaluation procedures; and
  • Reflect the learning ethos and values of PHM.

PHM prides itself on being a welcoming and inclusive organisation, profoundly committed to advancing equality and diversity in the broadest sense.  We highly value the benefits that diverse perspectives bring to PHM’s mission.

We recognise the museum currently underrepresents people of colour, disabled people, LGBTQI+ people and those with intersecting identities in our workforce; PHM is actively working to address this and encourages applications from these backgrounds.  While the successful candidate will be selected purely on merit, in the event of a tie between two candidates with equal experience, we may select a candidate who helps us better represent the communities the museum serves.
