Delivered through the medium of English
The session is intended to inform, engage and inspire; to get buy-in across the organisation, and, if desired, among partners and within the communities you support. We aim to create an energy and a ‘can-do’ enthusiasm which can be channelled into action.
This introductory session includes presentations, exercises, small-group and whole group discussions, and Q&A opportunities. It also includes a range of inspirational case-studies which offer powerful evidence of the impact of working in this way. It will cover:
- What co-production is, and isn’t.
- Why co-produce: purpose, value and impact.
- Strengths & Assets. What are you already doing?
- When to co-produce. Spectrum of engagement & complexity theory.
- Measuring what Matters. Co-productive evaluation.
- Co-pro and you – What could we do? What difference could we make?
By the end of the course, you will be able to:
- Understand what co-production is and the principles that underpin it
- Understand when (and when not) to use this approach
- Understand the impact of the co-production – for citizens, staff and organisations
- Understand the basics of a co-productive approach to evaluation
- Consider how these principles could be applied in their specific organisational context
Who this course is for
The Co-production Essentials session is designed for those with little or no knowledge of co-production, although those with experience in this way of working will also find it beneficial. It is suitable for a wide range of stakeholders – from trustees and managers through to frontline staff – and for members of the communities you support.
