Active bystander training occurs in many different settings and there may be nuanced adjustments that need to be made to these indicators according to the target group you are working with (for example University students, or faith-based communities). In this instance, it is recommended that pre-surveys be implemented prior to delivering the training so you can measure any knowledge or attitude shifts, as well as meet the group where they are at.
There is further guidance on survey writing and example survey templates available in the Data collection methods section.
# of training sessions delivered
# of participants in the training sessions
# or % of participants that reported the training process was safe and inclusive
# or % of participants that reported the training was relevant to them
# or % of participants that were satisfied with the training content and delivery
# or % of participants that report the training was time well spent
# of adjustments made to training content and delivery during/between sessions (and why changes were made)
As a result of the training session:
# of participants that recognise that violence against women is a serious and prevalent issue
# of participants that demonstrate an increased understanding of the types of behaviour that constitute violence against women
# of participants that acquire skills to recognise when bystander action is required
# of participants that report increased skills in bystander action (with examples)
# of participants that report increased confidence to intervene
# of participants that express an increased commitment to challenge the gendered drivers of violence against women and gender stereotypes
# of participants that feel more confident negotiating respectful relationships in their personal and public spheres
# of participants that feel more confident promoting respectful relationships in their personal and public spheres
# or % of participants that commit to taking bystander action to improve gender inequality in their everyday lives
Below are a few examples of indicators you can measure 6 months after bystander training has been delivered to see if the changes are sustained.
# of participants that were able to use bystander skills in their daily life
# of participants that have sustained a commitment to challenging the gendered drivers of violence and gender stereotypes
# of participants whose commitment to taking bystander action has waned (and reasons for this)
