dc.description.abstract A formative evaluation of a workplace skills programme was undertaken to examine the programme theory, implementation fidelity and the expected outcomes. The programme targets disadvantaged youth selected from rural communities and provides them with vocational development knowledge and skills to enhance their prospects for employment. The programme theory was depicted as a Logic Model from information extracted during semi-structured interviews, programme documentation and the programme websites. Data for the implementation and outcomes evaluations was derived from existing programme records. The Logic model was assessed as being reasonably plausible at inculcating the desired individual behavioural change whilst the implementation and outcomes evaluation identified deficiencies in the monitoring records that precluded any evaluatory judgement. Recommendations related to developing a robust monitoring system and a proposal for the application of the Theory of Planned Behaviour questionnaire (Ajzen, 2005) to trace the antecedents to behavioural intent were raised. en_ZA
