Description of the contract

Arts Council England is seeking to contract with a suitably qualified service provider to deliver advocacy and communications training sessions to its staff. The purpose of these training sessions is to develop understanding of the advocacy role held by all staff at the Arts Council, and to develop confidence and skills related to carrying out this role. We would like to ensure that staff at all levels are confident in their ability to advocate for the value of arts and culture and are equipped with a range of communications skills to achieve this. The service provider will provide three separate face to face courses: (1) Advocacy training for all staff – Session 1 to be available for all interested staff (with a wide range of experience). Session 2 to be for those at Director level and above (with a wide range of experience). (2) Digital communications skills – Open to all staff. (3) Writing coaching for communications professionals – Open to staff within the Advocacy and Communications team. The training will be required across our offices in England. Our national offices are in London, Birmingham and Manchester. Other offices are located in Brighton, Cambridge, Bristol, Nottingham, Dewsbury and Newcastle. Arts Council England has a staff of c.442 people across the organisation. There are c.30 staff members in the Advocacy and Communications team. Although we have set out requirements for a minimum number of sessions for each course, bidders may propose to deliver more than the minimum within the budget set out. Whether the courses take place will depend on demand from the Arts Council England staff and so we cannot guarantee that the minimum number of sessions will take place. Further detail about our requirements can be found in the ITT.
