Birmingham City Council is seeking for a supplier for the provision of an educational content writer for an online health literacy and well-being curriculum known as The Spiral Curriculum.

Birmingham Public Health has set an ambition to improve and protect the health and wellbeing of Birmingham’s population by reducing inequalities in health and enabling people to help themselves.

Birmingham is a diverse city with a wide variation in deprivation and ethnicity, it is a young city with 46% of its population aged under 30 years. Childhood obesity levels have been above national average since 2006, with a clear social gradient as children living in deprived communities are at an increased risk.

The successful organisation or person will support the Council’s existing Childhood Obesity Trailblazer Project:

Childhood Obesity Trailblazer – A national project to encourage Local Authorities to focus their efforts on becoming healthy food places. It is a council-led project in England, coordinated and funded by LGA to tackle childhood obesity at a local level, with a focus on inequalities. It aims to:
o test the limits of existing powers through innovative and determined action to tackle childhood obesity
o share learning and best practice to encourage wider local action
o develop solutions to local obstacles and consider further actions government can take to enable ambitious local action and achieve change at scale

The Spiral Curriculum is one of three of the workstreams the Council has developed to achieve this goal.
The Spiral Curriculum – A health literacy study that integrates the use of apprenticeship levy and training programmes to teach health and well-being content
o Focuses on health, food, nutrition and physical activity
o Embedded into level 1 to level 7 apprenticeships and pre-apprenticeship programmes
o Works with local universities and providers in Birmingham to embed health messaging in wider employment training
o Targets employment opportunities towards 15-19-year olds in the most deprived areas where rates of obesity are highest
o Aims to upskill a generation that could apply their knowledge in the home and as future parents

The contract will commence August 2021 for a duration of 3 months.
