Yes our Leadership and Management Development programs are evaluated.

HETI recognises that monitoring and evaluation is vital to ensure training delivery is appropriate for participants and that training achieves its intended objectives and learning outcomes. The process is underpinned by an evalution framework where data is collected and analysed in a systematic way:

  • Participant feedback surveys - measuring the extent to which a program's aims have been achieved and if any changes in participants' behaviour can be attributed to program content and activities
  • Formal evaluations - assessing the programs are appropriate for the intended audience and the quality of implementation

The Leadership and Management Development programs are state funded, delivered by HETI facilitators and available to all NSW Health staff .
