Improving the skills and confidence to use evidence

The third pillar of our approach focuses on improving the skills and confidence of social service stakeholders to use evidence appropriately and effectively. Activities within this pillar include demonstrating what is possible through evidence use, highlighting the benefits of improving evidence related skills, and developing individual skills and confidence.

Two recent projects highlight activity reflecting this element: data visualisation, and a self-evaluation peer group.

In 2014 we launched Creative Quarter to demonstrate how people can gain confidence and skills by unlocking their own creativity.
