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

Both of my children love Perform. Anya is in her 3rd term and loves everything about it. She loves being centre stage and Perform is helping to control her energy while retaining her enthusiasm. Ewan has just started and after his first lesson, asked everyday whether it was Perform day.

The teachers are so professional and really listen to what I am looking to get from the classes. They are so good with the children and really care how they progress.

It is unusual for Ben to settle so easily into a new situation. We are sending him to this course to build his confidence and he is thoroughly enjoying. He describes Samantha as 'very funny' and loves to go each week. The stickers for the poster are also a big hit and he is loving the Funky Fairy!

Perform is fantastic. The teachers are great, so friendly, nice, encouraging and really helping boost Isabelle's confidence. She's now much more chatty and confident. I would recommend Perform to every parent.

My first impressions of the class and Laura were really positive and after just two classes Jude was showing excitement about going. It’s great seeing Jude so keen to be involved in something away from home/school.

I am blown away at how amazingly well Isabelle has come along since starting Perform. Her confidence has already improved so much and I can also see a difference with her imaginative play. Isabelle has really come out of her shell.

My children are delighted with Perform! It is their favourite activity of the week.

– Ms Beatriz Sánchez Yánquez

Zachary loves the class. There is a good variety of activities and he really enjoys the songs and games. Matthew is enthusiastic and a good role model for my son, who is surrounded by female teachers at school.

– Mrs Judith Devney

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

Imani looks forward to Perform every week. Suzie is so lovely with the children and I love the email feedback every week. It’s great to know what they’ve been doing in class. Thank you again for making Imani feel so welcome.
