II.2.4)Description of the procurement:
The Foundation is seeking a supplier to design and deliver a middle manager programme. The needs of the middle management group are diverse. Each person has a variety of personal and professional requirements, so a personalised approach is required. It is common practice for staff to be employed straight into a teaching role, training to be a teacher whilst in the role. This group includes teachers and managers, thus a range of needs must be considered in designing and delivering the programme to ensure it is meaningful to personal and professional development, as well as being very work related and based on real live job requirements.
The programme should be as practical as possible, emphasising the contextualised project work that will benefit the individual to develop their own personal skills and abilities and, at the same time benefiting the organisation and sector. Practice should be supported by theory and tools and materials that would benefit individuals in their work with others, namely their teams if they are a manager of people.
The requirements are varied and complex, so a “1 size fits all” approach is not what we require. The key focus should be on a programme that is flexible, transferable, a modular and unitised scheme.
II.2.7)Duration of the contract, framework agreement or dynamic purchasing system
Subject to the availability of funding and sufficiently high quality performance of the successful tenderer during the initial phase of the contract, we would like to include a right to extend any contract for up to a maximum of 3 further years.
