Research and Evaluation

Wessex Partnerships’ track record in project development and implementation is complemented by its skill base in the field of research and evaluation.

Recent and relevant research is required for an organisation or partnership on which to base the remit of its work. Research into intended beneficiary needs is an important part of the construction of proposals for funding, to demonstrate a necessary awareness to the funding body and ensure that the proposed project has the greatest chance of successful implementation.

Wessex Partnerships has access to a wide range of economic research material to help identify the key requirements of a local economy, industry sector, specific theme or community.

We have a strong research-based track record with expertise in labour market issues and trends, current training policy and practice, industry sector trends, business trends and needs as well as covering themes such as technology and social inclusion.

Most national and EU / international projects and policies have a requirement to be independently evaluated both in terms of their absolute outcomes and the cost efficiency of alternative methods for achieving outcomes.

We can objectively evaluate the design, development and delivery of your project, offering greater validity to the findings of the exercise than would be possible with an in-house evaluation and ensure that future work learns from past experience and builds on good practice.
