WEBINAR – Insights on Work in the Evaluation Industry

Join us for an enlightening session in which we delve into the first hand experiences of a professional in the evaluation industry.


We are pleased to welcome Olha Krasovska, Senior Evaluation Specialist, North of Tyne Combined Authority (NTCA) as our speaker for this webinar.


The North of Tyne Combined Authority (NTCA) – in existence since 2018 – is a partnership of three local authorities: Newcastle, North Tyneside and Northumberland and a directly elected Metro Mayor. NCTA’s vision is of a dynamic and inclusive economy which brings together people and opportunities, narrow inequalities and ensure that all residents have a stake in the region’s future.

Olha Krasovska leads on the development and implementation of the Combined Authority’s approach to monitoring and evaluation. This includes ensuring evaluation is embedded in all of its projects and programmes and supports future policy making. Olha will share what this means in practice and where she draws professional satisfaction.

Issues to be discussed include: how to define evaluation approach; linking outcomes and impact; equality data collection; and the challenge on how to build an awareness of a combined authority.
