Preparation of evaluation strategies for three major programs for WorkCover NSW in 2012 – using the Program Logic Framework and based on stakeholder research and internal consultations and workshops to determine the nature of the program activities and efficient evaluation methodologies.
Evaluation of Beyond Billabong, a life and vocational training program for disadvantaged Indigenous youth across Queensland whose access to mainstream resources and opportunities is limited. As with AES, we conducted the economic outcomes and business model viability components of the evaluation, in a team led by Instinct and Reason Pty Ltd, in 2012.
Evaluation of the Aboriginal Employment Strategy (AES), a wholly Indigenous owned recruitment, group and registered training service which aims to facilitate Indigenous employment opportunities throughout Australia by building relationships with Corporate Australia. We conducted the economic outcomes and business model viability components of the evaluation, in a team led by Instinct and Reason Pty Ltd, in 2012.
In 2012 Kim and Amanda worked for the Tasmanian Department of Economic Development to review their business advisory services – Enterprise Centres Tasmania and Business Mentor Services Tasmania. We interviewed a wide range of stakeholders including providers, users and local government, to recommend some changes to the way the program was delivered.
