Would you like to hear from experts, develop new approaches and build your evaluation skills and confidence?

Together with the University of Leeds, we have developed a free-to-access online course: Evaluation for Arts, Culture and Heritage: Principles and Practice.

Available via the FutureLearn online learning platform, completing all six modules should take no longer than eight hours of study time.

Discover more about the course

In 2021, the Centre responded to industry-wide demand for support with evaluation. The result was our collaboratively created Evaluation Principles: a sharing of ideas to inform how evaluation is carried out and used within the arts, culture and heritage sector. This new online course builds on the Principles by exploring how to put them into practice.

Ben Walmsley, Director at the Centre for Cultural Value, says:

The course’s aim is to support a more purposeful and proportional approach to evaluation; it explores the Evaluation Principles and enables learners to consider how to apply them in their specific context to complement and support artistic ambitions.

Ready to start the course?

The course is available to start at anytime. Register on the FutureLearn online learning platform to gain two weeks free access to all course content.
