Invitation to tender: First Chances Fife

We are commissioning a retrospective evaluation of First Chances Fife; a programme that is aimed at supporting young people to achieve their full potential as they progress through education. Closing date 5th September, 2022.

First Chances Fife (FCF) works with P7 to S6 pupils, encouraging them to develop their skills, motivation, and self-esteem in order to achieve their full potential as they progress through their education. 

As well as understanding what change(s) the programme has contributed to for the participants, we also want to explore what has enabled (or hindered) those changes. We are also interested in understanding what impacts Covid-19 had on the programme and what lessons can be learned from that. 

The Robertson Trust will be managing the evaluation on behalf of First Chances Fife who will use the findings to inform future developments of this programme. There may also be broader lessons that can be learned from this programme and shared with other stakeholders.

The deadline for tenders is 5 pm on Monday 5th September 2022.

More information on the programme, the anticipated role of the Learning and Evaluation Partner, and the application process can be found in the Invitation to Tender.
