The Impact Story Initiative aims to spotlight how our learners have applied new knowledge and skills following the delivery of training. Contrary to testimonials or success stories, impact stories can show the positive and not-so-positive elements as well as the intended and unintended results from what we do. By using a variety of quantitative and qualitative methods, these stories are an evaluative tool to find the impact of our training, examining whether individual, organizational or even wider change has taken place. We want to hear from you. What is your Impact Story? Download the Impact Story Flyer or contact email@example.com.
