5.3. Monitoring and evaluation

Monitoring and evaluation should not be considered an optional extra in any programmes, least of all in the case of training programmes with a long-term objective of facilitating access to sustained employment. In-house quantitative studies are not an accurate measure of the success of a programme. It is not therefore adequate merely to state that a certain number of people have been trained or have found employment since this measure fails to assess both whether the job is related to the training and whether the employment is sustainable.

(x) A detailed study should be made of the situation comparing beneficiaries of formal vocational training with others who have not received any training so as to assess the “value added” by the training programmes.
