This 10 hour Results Based Project Design and Logical Framework Approach course will enable participants to design a project using stakeholder analysis, problem and objective analysis, the Logical Framework approach, activity planning and budgeting.  The course will also explore different proposal structures and ways of preparing them for submitting to donors.

The course starts with understanding the relevance of the problem to be addressed, how it has arisen and who is closely involved.  Is there a case for intervention?  The course will explore the challenges for identifying stakeholders and engaging with them in formulating the proposal and ensuring decisions are evidence based.  Finally the course will introduce participants to preparing project proposals that are well structured, clearly focused, comprehensive and very readable. By the end of the course participants will have gained the skills and experience to design and prepare a project proposal which they can use in their work.


The course is aimed at staff who are actively involved in designing and preparing project proposals.  Participants will be able to meet, online, people from around the world who are also actively engaged in project development and have the opportunity to work together and exchange experience and ideas.  Participants will receive a Toolkit and other supporting materials.

How the course is delivered

The course is delivered in five 2 hour online sessions spread over a five week period. All participants need is a PC, speaker/headphone and a broadband connection. Participants have the opportunity to follow up each session with relevant in-work exercises. Once participants complete an exercise they can send it to the trainer and she/he will respond with brief comments.


Participants who complete the course and two or more of the five exercises will receive a Completion Certificate.


The cost for the five sessions is £200 (US$ 315) per terminal; any number of people can view the course but only one person from each terminal is eligible to receive a Completion Certificate (if they have completed a minimum of two exercises).  For additional participants using the same terminal who would like to gain a Completion Certificate there will be an extra charge of £45 per person to cover the administration cost.  For bookings of more than 3 terminals there is a 20% reduction in cost for each terminal. Payment is made by Bank transfer.
