Evaluation of programmes or change

How do you know whether programmes or changes were well implemented and had the intended impact?

When changes, programmes or initiatives are introduced in your school, multi academy trust, college, university or other educational setting, we can evaluate the implementation and the impact.


Our evaluation will provide you with an independently gathered evidence base to use as lessons for future implementation and will assess the impact of any changes and help you continue to achieve the intended impact. We will help you to gain crucial insights and understanding of the process of implementing changes or programmes and what the impacts and outcomes (both intended and unintended) have been.

Our experienced evaluators can assist you in evaluating change by developing an in-depth understanding of the programme/initiative, identifying the intended outcomes and impacts, and then developing appropriate methods of monitoring and evaluating how the programme has been implemented and what the impacts are.

We have commissioned several research projects through Seymour Research and have been very pleased with the level of service.  The work was delivered on time and to a good standard.  We are happy to recommend Seymour Research.

Case study

We undertook an evaluation of a programme available to schools to enhance the social and emotional wellbeing of all children. We developed and administered a comprehensive online survey for existing users of the programme which sought information on their motivations for adopting the programme, their expectations and whether they have been met, their experiences of the training and support on offer, and whether they had noticed any impacts from the programme.


As well as exploring the overall perceptions and impacts of the programme, our analysis of the survey responses included a full breakdown of the findings by different background characteristics which helped to identify in which contexts the programme was likely to have been implemented most successfully and was likely to have elicited significant outcomes and impacts.
