Over 6500 beneficiaries completed our free of charge education programs so far.
Within the education programs IAN also conducts a comprehensive evaluation. The results of courses evaluation show high level of satisfaction of our beneficiaries with the training they attended (average mark for al courses on the scale from 1 to 5 is 4,7).
Second level of evaluation is testing of the psychological status of the education programs participants at the beginning and at the end of the program. The results show that after longer attendance of educational programs (minimum 3 months) participants have:
Positive change is not limited only to general psychological status. Participants show much higher degree of intention for engagement in job search, than before attending the program. They believe that business opportunities for them exist, that loss of a job may be a chance for advancement not exclusively a personal catastrophe, that their future mostly depends on themselves and that they have enough qualities to influence the decision of their future employers.
Finally, the most important result is that the participants have more chances for finding a new/better job after completing our education programs. In some programs percentage of beneficiaries who found jobs three months after the completion of the program goes up to 50%.
