The Framework guides you through your project stage by stage from concept, carrying out your project, through to evaluation and review. The Framework is helpful for developing ideas and addressing identified needs, as well as for projects that will follow the staged approach of the Framework. The project may be small or fulfil the criteria for a major University project.

These pages are to help you through your project from inception through implementation to the desired outcomes and provide you with helpful information and useful templates. You may choose to use the range of templates available for all projects; however we would recommend they are used for major projects. You may choose to use the range of templates offered for all projects as they can be adapted for use with major or small projects.
