Using Qualitative Methods of Evaluation

We know that statistics and numbers can only tell some of the story about impact. In order to get ‘behind’ those statistics we need to use qualitative methods of evaluation. The aims of this LINKS workshop in February 2023 were:

  • To explore what qualitative methods are and how they differ from quantitative methods
  • To examine the advantages and disadvantages of qualitative methods
  • To explore different types of qualitative methods for use with both young people and adults
