Welcome to the Training Evaluation Framework and Tools (TEFT)
Introduction to the Training Evaluation Framework and accompanying tools, designed to help funders, implementers, and managers plan successful evaluations of their in-service training programs.
The Training Evaluation Framework and Tools (TEFT) is a set of resources designed to help evaluators, implementers, and program managers at all levels plan successful evaluations of in-service training program outcomes.
Planning a useful and effective evaluation requires thoughtful consideration about which outcomes a training or trainings may achieve, and how to go about evaluating those outcomes. The TEFT was designed to guide this planning process.
These pages will first introduce you to a training evaluation framework, which provides a useful way to think about the individual-, organization-, and population-level outcomes that might arise from in-service trainings for health care workers, and the factors that might affect an evaluation. You can also view a 16-minute video that gives an overview of the TEFT. You can also download a document here which will give you an overview.
Next, you'll be introduced to a collection of tools and resources that can be used, together with the Framework, to design a successful outcome evaluation. Although any tool may be used on its own, they are introduced as a series of six consecutive steps. By working through the steps in order, you'll get to know the tools well. Together, this program is called the Training Evaluation Framework and Tools, or "TEFT."
The TEFT was created by the International Training and Education Center for Health at the request of the PEPFAR Human Resources for Health Technical Working Group. You can learn more about the people, methods, and effort behind this project here. Additional resources and the results of a comprehensive literature review are also available on this site. And, of course, we invite your feedback!
