Evaluation using the four levels of
Kirkpatrick’s model
A meaningful evaluation of the learning via a steering group
Level one: Happy sheets ‘are completed following individual speakers and feedback forms
gather subjective personal reactions to the learning experience. The learning sets also
enable individuals to discuss their feelings with their peers. We have 98% High
satisfaction rate of the training
Level two: Demonstrate an increase in knowledge and intellectual capability from before to
after the learning experience through reflective case studies. All of the students who
have submitted have passed the Diploma.
Level three: Examines the extent of the learned behaviour and the capability for personal
improvement and the implementation or application of what they have learned. This is
scoped through reflective practice during the programme.
Level four: Finally the overall results are evaluated and disseminated to demonstrate the
effects on primary care through the performance and outputs of the primary care mental
health workers.
The course provides primary care workers with 50 credits, equivalent to a whole years
revalidation. A course handbook lets applicants clearly see the learning outcomes
desired from them.
