North East Derbyshire District Council, Ambition Sheffield City Region, Interim Evaluation and Forward Strategy

Carney Green were commissioned to deliver an interim evaluation and forward strategy for the Ambition SCR programme in the East Midlands. Ambition is an employability programme for 18-24 year olds across the city region which focuses on developing employment skills through the provision of a key worker. The aim of the evaluation was to enable the local authority, its members, partner authorities and external funders to: understand the project’s achievements to date; identify potential improvements in project delivery; and establish a forward strategy for the programme.

The forward strategy assessed whether there was an ongoing need for delivery of a similar model based on current service delivered, established a series of recommendations for improvements to service delivery, and to identified potential programmes/funding streams to support its continued delivery. Carney Green designed a bespoke evaluation methodology for this evaluation which involved: a document review, the development of logic models and impact indicators, as well as quantitative and qualitative research.
