Data collection for the certificate “Fan project in accordance with the National Plan for Safety in Sports” (German: „Fanprojekt nach dem Nationalen Konzept Sport und Sicherheit“)10/20236/2025Koordinationsstelle Fanprojekte bei der Deutschen Sportjugend (KOS)

Project Manager: Dr. Vera Hennefeld

Contact Person: Dr. Vera Hennefeld

Staff: M.A. Katharina Hary

Description

In Germany, there is a dense network of social work institutions in the field of adolescent soccer fans (“fan projects”) that work in accordance with the National Plan for Safety in Sports (German: Nationales Konzept Sport und Sicherheit). A certification of those fan projects has been launched in 2010. Offering fan projects an instrument of quality control, the certification is intended to pursue multiple goals: Establishing a common standard for fan projects, increasing confidence in the work of fan projects, and improving the working context of fan projects. The certificate is awarded on the basis of a recommendation by the Quality Management Group of the Centre for Fan Project Coordination of the German Sports Youth (German: Koordinationsstelle Fanprojekte bei der Deutschen Sportjugend). The Quality Management Group includes representatives from soccer, the highest state and family authorities, science, and fan projects themselves. After the certification was revised and tested by CEval GmbH in two previous projects and subsequently rolled out nationwide by collecting the information required for the certification in all fan projects, CEval GmbH has now been commissioned with the data collection for the third phase of the certification process for the current 71 fan projects.

Staff: M.A. Katharina Hary

Description

The Lübeck Trainee Kolleg is a programme of the Joachim Herz Foundation and the Lübeck Possehl Foundation, which supports 25 Lübeck trainees over two years in their personal development and promotes social skills. Seminars, workshops and training sessions are designed to enable the trainees to recognise and develop their strengths and potential and to increase their self-confidence, sense of responsibility and social commitment. In the block events, further training is offered on three major thematic blocks: a) communication, b) society/ politics/ economy and c) cultural education. Further goals of the programme are the exchange between the trainees, the joint learning process and the development of a network. In the long term, the programme is intended to contribute to the personal development and professional establishment of the trainees and to increase the attractiveness of vocational training. In addition, it is intended to give the development of talented trainees a greater presence in society. As a pilot project, the Azubi Kolleg is designed to run for five years. In 2023, CEval GmbH was assigned again to support the evaluation of the programme. On the basis of the results-based framework and indicator catalogue developed in the previous project, the baseline data of the second cohort will be analysed in 2023 in comparison with the data of the first cohort. In addition, online surveys among trainees, teachers and supervisors as well as focus group interviews with trainees and guided interviews with teachers and supervisors at the end of the programme are planned as the basis for a before-and-after comparison.

Staff: M.A. Katharina Hary, M.A. Sandra Bäthge

Description

The senior citizens' portal "digital.vital" is a model project of the Amt Hüttener Berge, the district of Germersheim and the city of Püttlingen. The aim of the portal is to make a contribution to meeting the challenges associated with demographic change and advancing digitalisation: Through needs-based offers, people are to be supported in the areas of nutrition, exercise and leisure activities/social participation (incl. housing, mobility, support) in achieving and maintaining a high quality of life in old age. At the same time, the portal also aims to strengthen the digital participation of older people. The project started in July 2020 and from autumn 2022 various services and information will be made available on the portal. The Amt Hüttener Berge has commissioned CEval GmbH to evaluate the senior citizens' portal in order to gain insights into the quality of the information and services offered and to identify possible potential for optimising the user experience in terms of portal functionality and content. Methodologically, a total of four participant observations will be carried out for the structured evaluation of the user experience among the pilot users in the context of so-called digital workshops at various locations. The participant observations will be supplemented by follow-up interviews with selected participants a few days after their visit to the digital workshops in order to collect data on the actual benefits of the workshops and the use of the website by the participants. In addition, a standardised online survey will be conducted among senior citizens' organisations and actors in the partner municipalities on their perceptions and professional assessments of the senior citizens' portal, its services and potential for further development.
New challenges and developments – Fair trade and fair procurement in 2022. Follow-up to the study “Does fair trade change Society?”4/20223/2023Fairtrade Deutschland, Engagement Global Service für Entwicklungsinitiativen gGmbH mit ihrer Servicestelle Kommunen in der Einen Welt, Forum Fairer Handel, Weltladen-Dachverband

Project Manager: M.A. Sandra Bäthge

Contact Person: Dr. Stefan Silvestrini

Staff: Dr. Stefan Silvestrini, Dr. Maja Flaig, M.A. Katharina Hary

Description

In 2015, leading stakeholders of the German fair trade movement commissioned a study on the impact of fair trade in Germany, which was carried out by CEval GmbH. The study investigated the impact of fair trade in four societal areas, i.e., civil society, consumers, retailers and producers, and politics and the public sector. Since 2015 the fairtrade sector as well as the framework conditions in which it operated have changed. This includes, in particular, the environment for a fair public procurement. Against that backdrop, Fairtrade Germany, Engagement Global – Service für Entwicklungsinitiativen (Service for Development Initiatives) with its Servicestelle Kommunen in der Einen Welt (SKEW - Service Agency Communities in One World) and in cooperation with Forum Fairer Handel (Forum Fair Trade) and Weltladen-Dachverband (umbrella organization of German world shops) mandated CEval GmbH with the implementation of an updated and extended version of the 2015 study. The objective is to investigate the impact of fair trade in Germany between 2016 and 2022 under the changed framework conditions and taking into account the increased role of the German municipalities for fair trade and fair public procurement. Based on the findings, recommendations on how to further increase the effectiveness of fair trade and how to further support a fair public procurement shall be derived. Methodologically, the study builds on the approach developed for the 2015 study and relies on qualitative contribution analysis. On the basis of a so-called theory of change and its underlying hypotheses, the study will investigate the changes that are intended by the fair trade community in the various areas of observation as well as the contributions that have been made by the fair trade community to these changes. In doing so, a mix of qualitative and quantitative methods of data collection and analysis will be applied. The starting point will be an extensive desk study of existing literature and secondary data, which will be complemented by empirical data collected by means of guided key informant interviews, (focus) group discussions and a semi-standardized survey.
Evaluation of the ASG Mentoring Programme 2022/20233/20221/2024Agrarsoziale Gesellschaft e.V.

Project Manager: Dr. Vera Hennefeld

Contact Person: Dr. Vera Hennefeld

Staff: M.A. Katharina Hary

Description

The overriding goal of the non-profit Agrarsoziale Gesellschaft e.V. is to work for the improvement of living conditions in rural areas and in agriculture. Qualified and committed people are a central resource for the positive development of rural areas. Against this backdrop, an ASG mentoring programme was created in which students and graduates who would like to become professionally involved in and for rural areas are supported on their career path over a period of 18 months. The ASG Mentoring Programme is based on the three classic mentoring components: The tutorial support of mentees through the formation of mentoring tandems with leaders from science, administration, politics, non-governmental organisations and business, the acquisition of competencies by the mentees within the framework of the accompanying seminars of the programme, ASG conferences/seminars and the development of personal contacts and networks through the professional exchange with all stakeholder groups within the programme as well as in the context of the ASG conferences and seminars. CEval GmbH was commissioned with the accompanying evaluation of the mentoring programme. The central task of this evaluation is to provide the ASG staff who are responsible for the implementation of the project with timely and relevant information. Of particular interest are questions about satisfaction with the seminars offered, the quality of the tutorial relationships, and the professional and personal benefits of the relationship for both sides. Methodologically, the evaluation is based on standardised online surveys of the mentees and/or mentors at six points in time and on qualitative interviews of the programme leaders and mentors as well as on (focus) group discussions with the mentees.

The project ends in June 2022. CEval GmbH was commissioned by GIZ to evaluate the sector project. The evaluation will be conducted according to the specifications and guidelines for central project evaluations of GIZ, which include a standardized analysis grid (evaluation matrix) based on the OECD-DAC criteria (relevance, coherence, efficiency, effectiveness, impact, sustainability). The CEval team follows a mixed-methods approach combining qualitative and quantitative instruments for data collection and analysis. Semi-structured interviews, focus group discussions and an online survey will be applied. Causal relations between project activities and potential impacts, will be assessed following a contribution analysis approach.
