Invitation to tender: Active outdoor learning
The brief for this project is to develop a training programme that will improve teachers' capability, opportunity and motivation to incorporate active outdoor learning as a key part of the curriculum provision for the children in their school going forward.
Deadline: Friday 29 January, 12pm.
We have answered the questions below in response to the details of the tender document:
Is there likely to be a change in the delivery timetable and final deadline for this work (currently July 2021) as a result of the current school closures and ongoing disruptions due to Covid 19?
The delivery timetable and therefore final deadline will be need to be flexible based on the current COVID situation. The delivery timetable will be dictated by the JU:MP schools and Creating Active Schools Director - based on the needs of the schools.
Given project deadlines, the priority will be for the work to be completed this academic year. If this is not possible, we would expect the deadline to be extended into the 2021-22 academic year. If the chosen provider is not able to deliver due to the extended deadline, we would need to revisit the tender process. It would be advantageous to outline your flexibility to delivering the tender within the proposal.
There isn't evaluation in this tender is there? i.e. just design / implement the PAL training...just wanted clarity
There is no expectation for the tender to include a full evaluation. However, as the programme is led by the Bradford Institute for Health Research, there will be an evaluation of the programme of delivery. Therefore, indicating how the project may be evaluated in partnership with the JU:MP Research and Evaluation team would be advantageous.
Further, embedding a review of the training is an integral part of the delivery process to ensure lessons are learnt and training can be improved for future roll out.
