Public Sector Network Tender Alert


GB-London: Youth Film Academy Network - Evaluation Services

In February 2012 the UK Government published Cultural Education in England: an independent review by Darren Henley for the Department for Education and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport. A key recommendation was the establishment of a national Youth Film Academy Network and the BFI was given responsibility for its development and implementation. Subsequently the Department for Education in England has committed £1m pa funding from April 2012 until 31 March 2015 for the BFI to deliver a new national youth film academy network. This innovative talent development programme will forge pathways for young talent to develop careers across the film industry, delivering high-quality cultural, vocational and educational outcomes. The evaluation for the Youth Film Academy Network will be carried out over its initial three-year cycle. In year one (January –March 2013) , the objective is to develop a sustainable monitoring, evaluation and reporting framework for the Youth Film Academy Network, including clear targets and indicators. The framework is to be developed for three aspects of the programme: 1. The regional programme and residential Talent Campus: evaluating the activities undertaken by both programme strands, identifying best practices, implementation challenges and lessons learned. 2. Programme outcomes: measuring the progress towards Film Academy Network key objectives, including a model for monitoring and tracking the programme alumni. 3. Operational running of the Film Academy: evaluating the processes, resource allocation, management and governance of the Youth Film Academy Network. The framework will build upon already existing evaluation activity carried out in the action research stage of the Youth Film Academy Network Programme, taking place between October 2012 and January 2013 at BFI Southbank and at the Tyneside Cinema, Newcastle. In years two and three, the evaluation framework will be implemented in partnership with the BFI and the regional and residential partners. This contract is for year one, with the option to extend in years 2 and 3
