Call for tenders for a learning partner
The Baring Foundation is pleased to announce a call for tenders for a learning partner to support our Strengthening the Voluntary Sector programme. Our new learning partner will act as a critical friend to the Foundation, our funding partners and grantees – pulling together the threads of promising activity from projects, scanning the wider field and proposing options for further commissioned research and convening.
The successful partner will be willing and able to provide thoughtful and dynamic guidance on the opportunities and challenges the programme faces, frame the debate and determine an exciting action research agenda.
We welcome tenders from any qualified organisation, including not-for-profit organisations, companies and universities. Individuals may also submit a tender, but will need to demonstrate that they have the skills, capacity and infrastructure to meet all our aims for a learning partner.
£30,000 per year is available from the Baring Foundation to fund the work of the learning partner. The partnership will run for an initial three year period, reviewed annually.
Full details on the tender requirements are included in the guidelines. Tenders can be made through this link to our online portal. To regain access to your online application, please use this link and enter your log in details.
Tenders must be received by 5pm on 30 October 2017. Organisations or individuals shortlisted for the grant will be interviewed on 21 November 2017.
If you are interested in tendering, you should discuss your proposal with David Sampson at the Baring Foundation well in advance of the deadline. Contact details can be found in the tender guidelines.
