TEI outcomes framework – how we’ll work together
What is the TEI outcomes framework?
The TEI outcomes framework explains how we will work together to build evidence and improve outcomes. It underpins the whole TEI program and provides a roadmap for linking program activities to improved outcomes.
This helps you to see the contribution your work, and the TEI program as a whole, is making toward achieving lasting change. It also ensures that we invest in programs that deliver meaningful outcomes for the people we serve. A large part of this is developing a clear program logic and collecting and reporting data.
What has changed?
You now need to align to the TEI outcomes framework as part of your contract.
What does this mean for you?
In the past, developing a program logic and reporting data through the Data Exchange was optional. You may have already begun these steps if you opted into Pathway 1. Under the new program, it will be compulsory.
You will need to develop a simple program logic. You will need to review your program logic each year.
We have extended the Try, Test and Learn period until 31 December 2020.
This means, from 1 January 2021, you will need to collect data and report it using the Data Exchange.
The period between negotiating your TEI schedule and 31 December 2020 is a great opportunity to set yourself up on the Data Exchange. You can get used to how it works and start developing your program logic. Ask your local DCJ district for help when you discuss recommissioning with them.
As part of your new contract, you may have milestones for implementing the Data Exchange and developing a program logic.
How will we help you?
We have created a TEI specific program logic template to help you align your service to the outcomes framework. Your local DCJ district can also help you to create your program logic.
If you haven’t started using the Data Exchange system, your local district will support you to start doing so. You can find out more on the Data Exchange page.
