Victoria Collis joined River Path Associates in 2002 and has been managing director since 2009. She specialises in international education, cultural relations, and public diplomacy.
A member of the UK Evaluation Society, Victoria leads on River Path’s research and review practice. Her primary focus is in supporting senior decision makers as they tackle the challenges posed by an increasingly complex, globalised world.
Victoria has more than 11 years’ experience of developing approaches to measuring impact. In 2011, she was responsible for the design of a monitoring and evaluation framework for Transforming Education in Pakistan, a DFID funded programme. In 2009, she designed an evaluation framework for International Inspiration, the legacy programme for London 2012. Victoria also regularly designs and manages organisational and programme reviews on behalf of client organisations including a range of UK government departments, as well as the European Commission.
Aside from her specialisation in monitoring and evaluation, Victoria has also built a practice in programme design and development. For the British Council, she has supported the 2011 redevelopment of its support offer to UK universities and colleges marketing themselves to international students, and the 2012 development of a new global programme for schools. Victoria spent a year from 2012-13 acting as an adviser to DFID Pakistan on the implementation of its £650 million investment in basic education, with a focus on its major programmes in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa provinces. She is currently supporting UNICEF’s work on the Girls’ Education Project in Nigeria on behalf of DFID; working with the British Council on the monitoring and evaluation of the Connecting Classrooms programme; and assisting Adam Smith International with the implementation of the Khyber Pahktunkhwa Education Sector Plan in Pakistan.
