Building Better Opportunities Programme (Cannock, Tamworth, Lichfield and East Staffordshire)

Invitation to tender for the “EVOLVE” programme evaluation

Steps to Work are the lead organisation for a Building Better Opportunities Programme in Staffordshire.  The “EVOLVE” project became operational in January 2017 and will be delivered until September 2022.  The aim of the programme is to engage with the most disadvantaged people within the Cannock, Lichfield, Tamworth and East Staffordshire Districts and move them closer towards employment.  The project is delivered by 14 delivery partners offering a diverse range of services and activities.

We are seeking to appoint an independent evaluation partner with a real commitment to working with us to determine the effectiveness of the ‘EVOLVE” Building Better Opportunities programme and the outcomes and results being achieved for participants.  Initially, we are seeking an evaluator to provide evidence, gathered from the perspective of both participants and delivery partners, of what is working well and what needs to be improved as part of a process of our continuous improvement process.  As we approach the end of the programme we will be looking for a final evaluation report that evidences achievements and identifies lessons for any future programmes of a similar nature.

The deadline for submissions is 10am on Thursday 30th May 2019
