canal college Evaluation Consultant – Invitation to quote

We need an evaluation consultant to work on canal college®, our ambitious, award-winning youth employability programme, set to start this May.

As an Evaluation Consultant, you’ll work with the canal college project team, liaise with partners, collate and analyse data, create an interim report, conduct destination analysis of participants 6 months after the end of the programme, and provide the final report for the funders by May 2020.

We need someone who can create an evaluation which is visual, practical and easy for young participants to engage with.  It needs to fit with the structure of the programmes and its qualifications and will need to cover three geographical locations; 3 per year over 3 years. The evaluation must cover stakeholder views, young people, mentors, staff, partners and providers.

About canal college

canal college® is our employability project, almost exclusively based outdoors and delivering 14-week programmes of heritage and employability skills to disadvantaged and marginalised 16-30 year olds. The outdoor focus is highly innovative and sets the project apart from other employability support. canal college takes place along Scotland’s canals, with programme activities concentrating on developing outdoor skills, traditional construction skills and conservation skills, such as vegetation clearance, stonework, lime-mortaring and the creation of wildlife habitats.
