Making sure our programme is having impact and adapting our work to meet the needs of our stakeholders, is a core principle of Hello Future.
This section of our website is dedicated to capturing our impact, learning, research and useful tool kits, templates and documents to help you and your organisation measure impact and evaluate outreach. Here you can also find out more about our programme, our aims and objectives and evidence of the impact of Hello Future.
We are committed to understanding the measurable impact we have on the young people we have been established to support.
Meeting our clearly defined aims by fulfilling our objectives is central to our work. We have specific objectives for our Targeted Outreach Programme, The Outreach Hub and Evaluation. To meet our objectives we deliver an outreach programme made up of intervention activities that take various formats.
Intervention formats are the mechanism through which an outreach activity is delivered such as mentoring, community outreach and workshops. Intervention activity describes the content of the outreach and the themes explored within.
To ensure we have measurable impact we use a Theory of Change. This is a visual representation of our programme’s inputs, activities, outputs, outcomes and underlying mechanisms.
Its main function is to enable us to understand how the different parts of our programme fit together to ensure we meet our objectives. We also use it as a benchmark through which to ask ourselves questions to ensure our target learners are receiving impactful outreach interventions at the right time in their educational journey.
Our whole programme Progression Framework is an accessible guide. It’s for our central team, careers leaders and teachers to facilitate learner access to a sustained programme of Higher Education and Apprenticeship outreach across the county.
Its development is a collaborative process, shaped by the whole team and updated each July (ahead of the start of the academic year) in response to our learning about ‘what works’ in the previous year.
