The National Skills Academy for Nuclear is serious about measuring the effectiveness of its work and the impact it creates for its stakeholders.
We believe that the Skills Academy has the potential to create Change for its customers in at least 5 ways - it could change their Capacity, their Capability, their Competitiveness, their Collaboration and their Cultures. These are the 5Cs that form the backbone of the evaluation framework and plan that has been designed for the Skills Academy by Skyblue Research Ltd.
As evidence of this commitment to measuring effectiveness and impact, a five-year programme of independent evaluation was commissioned in 2012 that will conclude in April 2017. Over that time, Skyblue Research, our independent evaluators, will act as critical friends to this process and conduct a range of surveys, consultations, observations and technical analyses that will help 'tell the Skills Academy's story.' This means developing really powerful insight from both within our organisation and from customers outside our organisation, and doing it in a way where the Skills Academy can always learn and improve.
This website has been constructed by Skyblue to act as a repository for all the evaluation materials, results and resources that are developed over time. It is hoped that the Skills Academy and Skyblue teams can get different uses out of the site and its resources over time and that it will aid communication of the activities being delivered. Welcome to the 5C website.
