INDICATOR PHRASING: Total number of active CCT facilitators

What is its purpose?

Demonstrating the scale of CCT: total number of facilitators who are implementing a CCT process with a local church or with a local church and community as a result of training conducted or funded by Tearfund and/or a local partner or that of allies where Tearfund have played a catalytic role.

How to Collect and Analyse the Required Data


Facilitator refers to a community level volunteer or church leader who has participated in a CCT training process.

Facilitators can only be considered to be active if they have facilitated a church in one of the CCT steps in the past 6 months.

Facilitators can still be counted if they have not gone through the whole CCT training process, they may be in the middle of the training but they must be actively facilitating a church.

This indicator is the cumulative total of all active facilitators therefore it includes new facilitators and existing active facilitators.


Teams should make a note of any new facilitators becoming active in the past 6 months and of any facilitators who are no longer active or have dropped out and amend the cumulative total accordingly. 

To track the total number of new facilitators, trainers or CCT coordinators should keep an accurate log of all facilitator training workshops and collect monitoring forms for facilitators recording their activities. 

These can also be verified through supporting evidence such as attendance, training plans, or photographs.

Where Tearfund has had a catalytic role, church denominations or other allies should be encouraged to take this approach to help them effectively support facilitators.

Who collects?

CCT coordinators or CCT trainers should record attendance of facilitators and collect facilitator monitoring forms to share with Tearfund every 6 months.

If Tearfund is playing a catalytic role, the collection will be done by partner denomination trainers/personnel and can be shared with Tearfund at the discretion of the partner.


Disaggregate by

Gender as standard.

Additional social identity markers can be used where it is helpful and safe to do so, such as age, ethnic affiliation, disability or denomination/network.

Important Comments

As some facilitators may no longer be active (for instance, because of moving away) the total pool will not always be a cumulative sum of each year but instead should be kept updated with the number who are still active.
