Theory of Change Training
As a non-profit you are the change makers of our world. You have a vision of the difference you want to make, but do you have a map for how to get there?
A Theory of Change can be just that map. This popular tool helps bridge the gap between your organisation’s activities and your desired impact. In this course, you will discover how to create your own Theory of Change. By crafting your organisation’s story, it takes the needs of your beneficiaries and challenges you to uncover the exact journey they will be going on to experience real and lasting change.
A good Theory of Change is a powerful tool that can be used to effectively communicate with your stakeholders, support you with your Monitoring and Evaluation and guide your plans and strategy for a bright and successful future.
Registration for our July training is now closed. Registration is OPEN for Theory of Change Facilitator training commencing 11 October 2021. Our TOC fundamentals course is open year round.
Our expert trainers have taken their face-to-face training content and adapted it to meet the increasing demand for online learning. Our experienced training staff, have created content to ensure your learning needs are met, whilst providing you with the flexibility of an online training course.

How it works
Our goal is to move beyond learning to application. We provide you with the same planning and facilitation materials we use in our consulting practice, for you to run guided workshops within your own organisation with a step-by-step guide on how to use them.
Our training is delivered through our online training platform using a combination of instructional videos, examples, case studies, and self-reflection activities. These are all supported by AiA developed frameworks and tools.
For our Facilitation training, we also run weekly zoom meetings with small groups, where we discuss the content, answer questions and present case studies.
Access to all materials is available for six months from purchase.
