A Briefing Document is available alongside this call, which outlines key background and scope information to which bidders should refer.
The deadline for receipt of proposals in response to this call is 12 noon UK time on Tuesday 20th April 2010.
Bidders may submit proposals for more than one strand of this call. However each strand must be addressed in a SEPARATE bid with appropriate references to the related bid(s), identifying where there would be economies of scale and added value if more than one bid were funded.
Proposals may be submitted by Higher Education (HE) Institutions funded by HEFCE or HEFCW. FE institutions in England that teach HE to more than 400 FTEs are also eligible to bid provided proposals demonstrate work that supports the HE in FE agenda. HE and FE institutions in Northern Ireland and Scotland and FE institutions in Wales are not eligible to bid but may be involved as partners in proposals led by HE institutions funded by HEFCE or HEFCW or FE institutions in England which meet the criteria outlined above. Bids involving Welsh institutions should address one or more of the priorities outlined in ‘One Wales’, the Welsh Assembly Government's progressive agenda for Wales.
