“The training surpassed any expectations I may have had. it was the BEST short training I have ever done, and has made me feel the most inspired and creative I have felt in a long time.”- Trainee, October 2017 course.

A new course for those keen to learn the basics of our Participatory Video combined with the Most Significant Change technique (PVMSC). Over the past 9 years of developing our PVMSC process we have seen that it can create an invaluable space for organisations to learn through reflection and reshaping of programmes in line with participants’ values. We have been asked on numerous occasions to provide guidance on using PV for monitoring and evaluation so we felt it was time to share our learning.

In December 2015 we launched our PVMSC toolkit to help spread the method. You can download a free copy here. Now we invite you to learn how to design a PVMSC process in this intensive and highly practical training. As a trainee you will experience, explore and practise elements from the toolkit. The course is designed around principles of experiential learning: using a wide range of techniques that enhance creativity, sharing, reflection and learning. You will learn how to assess when PVMSC is appropriate as well as to design as PVMCS process as part of a wider M&E strategy. The course also includes advice on how to capitalise on a process that can simultaneously be an M&E activity, a programmatic intervention and an advocacy exercise.

What past trainees said about the course

“The training was a very positive experience on many levels, being very well facilitated and the learning opportunities were immeasurable. It far surpassed any expectations I may have had and I want to apply my newly acquired knowledge and skills in the field as soon as possible in 2018.”

“It was very participatory; great feeling of being ‘heard’; selecting criteria was very important; being given a chance to change my mind about MSC story; glad my story wasn’t selected so that I was able to focus on filming/creating ideas for MSC story; all the participatory exercises were fun and inclusive; it was great not to write notes and just ‘be’!”

“You have spoilt me for all future trainings! I have realised how much of a visual learner I am and now cannot abide boring trainings where we sit around and listen to people speak at us all day! so thank you for doing your job so well…”

“To go through the method and experiencing it is the only way to model it to others. It is also very therapeutic.”
