The Genesis Programme is committed to delivering, reviewing and evaluating all of our programmes to ensure we achieve the best outcomes possible for the children, families and communities we work with.
In order to achieve this we undertake a range of initiatives. These include:
Furthermore, we engage locally and nationally with a range of service providers, agencies and third level institutions to establish baseline data, evaluate our programmes and identify areas/gaps in the services we provide to allow us plan for future programmes and interventions. These include:
One of the key objectives of The Genesis Programme is to ensure Group Leaders delivering The Incredible Years® suite of programmes are trained and coached to the highest standard ensuring fidelity and standards are met.
When a programme is being implemented with fidelity, it ensures that we are able to achieve the same outcomes for children that the original programme was designed to achieve.
With this in mind, The Genesis Programme has developed a series of Best Practice Guidelines for Group Leaders implementing The Incredible Years® suite of Programmes.
One of the most effective ways of ensuring that fidelity and standards are maintained, is for the Group Leader to video tape their sessions.
This enables the Group Leader to reflect on their practice, to monitor and review the session content and process, in partnership with their Peer Coach.
