OBA Training

OBA Training for September & November
Introducing an Outcomes Based Accountability Approach for your Charity (AKA how to measure the difference your charity makes).

This course is delivered in two parts with the first session introducing you to what an OBA approach is and why you would adopt it in your charity. It covers basic OBA principles, expressing and measuring how your charity "makes a difference" and how you can utilise this approach in planning and grant applications. The sessions are suitable for charity governors, CEOs and fundraisers and no prior knowledge of OBA principles is required.
Part two is a workshop where you will gain an insight into the steps that a local charity took to implement and apply the OBA approach to their work and the difference this has made to them and their stakeholders. You will then be helped to get started by applying an OBA approach to one aspect of what you do in your charity.

Part 1 is delivered by Mary Curtis of Calmera Limited, Wednesday 6th September 14.30 till 16.30 at Pips Place, Union Street, St Helier
