4415-2013: UK-London: Management training services

The British Council has set out a bold and ambitious Corporate Plan for 2011-15, which states that our commitment to growth is built on the strength of our people.
Enhancing management skills is an important part of our approach to building organisational strength and capability. We have therefore segmented our management population into three groups: first line managers, experienced managers and strategic managers and are introducing organisation-wide development interventions for each of these groups.
We have developed and piloted a programme, Managing for Success, for our experienced manager group. We wish to enter into framework contracts with up to two suppliers for the provision of 4 or more high quality facilitators to co-facilitate this programme with us over the next 2 years as we roll out Managing for Success across our global network.
Managing for Success is a high-quality blended development programme taking place over 6 months with a 3-day face-to-face workshop at its heart. Participants bring real management challenges with them to the programme.
The main business objective of this procurement is to secure the services of high quality facilitators to partner with the British Council in the roll out of the Managing for Success Programme over the next 2 years. We are looking to have a pool of 4 or more facilitators to work with us on a regular basis, ensuring that there is continuity of approach and external facilitators continue to develop their understanding of the British Council over the life of the contract.
