On 30 May we'll be holding an Evidence Masterclass in our central London venue (Blackfriars), open to Alliance members seeking to increase the use of evidence in their work and become more confident users of research.

Allow us to take you on an evidence journey, developing critical skills to build a case for evidence, understanding where to look for the most appropriate evidence and how to communicate it to have the best impact.

Your facilitator for the day will be Stella Mascarenhas-Keyes* who will support you to:

  • Reflect on the benefits and challenges of using research evidence to develop policy and inform practice.
  • Share insights and experiences of evidence-informed decision-making.
  • Learn more about the use of evidence and become more confident in your approach.

You will be placed into the thick of real decision-making and the challenges of using evidence through simulation activities and practical examples.  We want you to leave the Masterclass feeling comfortable finding and using a range of evidence.

If you work in policy or practice and need evidence to help in your every day work, the Masterclass is a unique opportunity to share experiences and learn from peers and our expert facilitator. Please note, the course is not aimed at research or evaluation specialists.

The cost of the one day course is £240pp including VAT and subject to a £2 admin fee, if you book your place before Friday 27th April there is an early bird rate available of £216pp including VAT, plus admin fee. 
Participants will receive a copy of our Using Research Evidence Practice Guide to take away with them.

At the Alliance we never want cost to be a barrier to be involved in our work, if you are interested in the programme but are concerned about the cost please get in touch.
