Evaluating the Impact of Antenatal Classes

11. Evaluating the Impact of Antenatal Classes .jpg

The Approach

Data entry for approximately 300 post course survey and 60 post natal surveys was done using customised VBA forms in Excel. 

Results of the surveys were pulled out and presented in a form that Parentskool were happy with. This can be used going forward, as more surveys are received. These results show how specific social-impact targets and values are being met by the CIC.

“This work has made a huge difference as it means we have instant outcomes data which we can use in fundraising and talking to commissioners.”

The Client

Parentskool’s vision is for every parent to be informed, prepared and confident in their ability to care for their baby. Their mission is to provide realistic, fun and confidence-building antenatal courses, and other products and services, that supports their vision to inform and prepare parents-to-be, resulting in more confident, healthier and happier parents and babies.

The Client's Problem

To analyse and evaluate the impact from their antenatal classes on first time parents across various factors: by socio-demographics and other cross analysis to produce an independent evaluation of their outcomes.

The Solution

  • Results to show social-impact targets and values are being met by the CIC.
  • Workbook with data capture forms which produces high level results.

The Benefits

  • Parentskool were able to show fundraisers the impact of their courses by giving survey results.
  • Parentskool now have a system for data entry which automatically produces high level results to use going forward.
  • It was a great opportunity for the volunteer analyst to use key skills to help others.
