“I work for a brand new organisation and the AMEC International Certificate in Measurement and Evaluation has proved very valuable in helping me to develop an evaluation strategy, not only to improve the work of the communications team but also to make sure that communications informs business planning as a whole. The course allowed me to delve into the academic literature, while the weekly webinars and forum discussions allowed for sharing of best practice between colleagues from different organisations and countries. I would really recommend the course to anyone who wants to take a more evidence-led approach to their work as a communications professional.”

“The AMEC International Measurement Certificate course has been very valuable to my professional growth as I have learnt valuable principles and frameworks of measurements and evaluation in the field communications. Being part of the course has exposed me to numerous trends and frameworks of measurements and evaluation for both social media and traditional media. The emphasis on goal setting and measuring outcomes rather than outputs was such an eye opener and it has changed my Department’s planning strategy. We now think of measurements from the start of a campaign when we set our communications objective.”

It is becoming increasingly important in my workplace and this course has given me the confidence to take a leading role in its application.”
