Monitoring and evaluation

The intended overall impact of the Scheme is the development of young people with specific needs who would otherwise not get the chance due to socio-economic reasons and other barriers to access.

To this end there are three main elements to measuring the impact of the Scheme:

  • The number of placements available for young people in need
  • The number of young people who participate in the drama course from the targeted areas of need
  • The progress made by each participant during the drama course

These are clearly measured and analysed using existing systems set up and made available by Perform. This ensures efficiency of costs and also the highest protection of data (Perform have inbuilt quality mechanisms for ensuring data protection of their young people).

Monitoring and evaluation is carried out for two core organisational purposes – to measure the impact of the Scheme, and to comply with organisational obligations and responsibilities. The key tools for measuring the impact of the Scheme are:

  • Quantitative count: number of placements available for young people in need in any one year
  • Quantitative count: number of young people who participate in the drama course from the targeted areas of need in any one year
  • Qualitative analysis: the progress made by each participant during the drama course as reported in development files for each young person
  • Qualitative analysis: the analysis of specific development areas across all young persons supported by the Scheme

There are a number of quality assurance procedures in place to ensure effective monitoring and evaluation of organisational obligations and responsibilities. These include the following:

  • Child Protection Policy and procedures
  • Health and Safety Policy and procedures
  • Annual financial audit process
  • Stakeholder condition compliance procedures (as required)
  • Perform Teacher training standards
  • Perform Teacher monitoring procedures

Kelly is such an enthusiastic and friendly teacher. My son cannot wait to get to her class and comes out so happy! He loves the apps and always wants to listen to the CD in our car!

Charlie is always happy to go to drama and we have seen a big improvement in her confidence. She loves showing us her new dance moves and songs too.

– Mrs Jo Oldreive

Millicent really looks forward to coming to Perform. She was already a pretty confident thing but she has really enjoyed being able to express her ideas and imagination.

Poppy is so excited to go to her class every week and has been singing and dancing along to the CD all week. A wow of a success. Thank you.

I am so pleased I  found Perform, I think it's the perfect balance for this age group of fun and skills. Robbie has always been incredibly approachable and teaches with a great enthusiasm that has meant Martha has settled into the classes very quickly. Thank you.

– Anna Young

My daughter has loved every single moment of the class and has learnt some dance moves. Naomi has been very welcoming, her energy; inspiring and motivational.

– Ms Husn-Ara Mohabeer

I’m very impressed by the pro active, thoughtful way each session is run, the recap at the end for parents is encouraging. It is great to know that Ethan is not just being ‘entertained’ for the hour, but pro actively being taught new life skills - and he always comes out absolutely full of life.

– Mrs Kate Whyley

Perform is a fantastic class that teaches the children to let go of their inhibitions and gives them confidence to shine. The producers are all amazing and are so good with the children. Darcie looks forward to coming to the group each week.

– Mrs Lisa Bennett

Archie's been coming nearly three years now and is still enthusiastic about it. New games and activities keep it fresh. And both boys love Abby, who balances fun with discipline really well. Very happy to recommend!

– Claire Campbell

Willow loves this class and looks forward to coming along every Monday. Lisa-Marie has so much energy and is amazing with the children. I have never been to such a well communicated after school activity. The information that is provided is great!
