Invitation to tender: evaluation of IEF Trust Programme

The Integrated Education Fund (IEF) is looking for experienced and qualified consultants to help evaluate and improve our Trust grants programme.

The Trust Programme is designed to support integrated schools in forging and strengthening links with other schools, their local community, wider Northern Ireland and beyond. The Programme ran for the first time in 2015 and the IEF is inviting tenders from individuals or organisations to gauge the success of the first year.  This project is required to run between May 2016 and 31 July 2016.

There are three strands to the programme, each involving a lead integrated school and each offering support for projects aiming to increase understanding of cultural diversity and respect for difference.   In the programme’s first year, a total of £70,085 was awarded across 12 projects which were all school-based and included Primary and Second Level.  These are spread across all five Board areas and are due be completed by June 2016.

Closing date for tenders is 12 noon on Friday 15 April 2016.
