Co-design of an Evaluation Framework for the Families as First Teachers Program

Current project

This project will develop a co-designed evaluation framework for the Families as First Teachers Program (FAFT) and the Stay and Play Learning Centres.

This project, commissioned by the NT Department of Education will develop a co-designed evaluation framework for the Families as First Teachers Program (FAFT) and the Stay and Play Learning Centres. AIFS is leading the evaluation and working collaboratively with the NT Department of Education, FAFT and Stay and Play providers and community members to develop and document an evaluation framework that will include:

  • a shared understanding of measurable outcomes for the FAFT program
  • theory of change and program logic
  • key evaluation questions include
  • identified measures to understand the impacts of the program
  • proposed methodology for the evaluation

The co-design approach takes into account the diversity of contexts of the delivery of the programs and the need to understand the challenges of delivering and evaluating programs in the context of remote service delivery. It is important to understand how the programs are delivered, the environments the are delivered within and the capacity of program staff to contribute to the conduct of an evaluation in designing an approach.
