Help us assess the impact of Erasmus+: research consultants wanted!

The Erasmus+ UK National Agency (NA) is committed to trying to understand and evidence the impact of the Erasmus+ programme on the individuals and organisations who participate in it.

We have three projects we are inviting suitably qualified consultants to submit tenders for. Bidders can tender for one, two or all three projects.

A summary of each project is below. Full details are in the downloadable Invitation to Tender (ITT) documents.

Questions from interested consultants are welcome and details of the questions received and the responses given will be appended to the ITTs as they are received.

Project 1: Impact+ Exercise User Research 2019

The project will identify the outcomes of using the NA beneficiary support materials known as the Impact+ Exercise through research with the approximately 40 individuals who participated in one of our training workshops in autumn 2018.

This will be the third wave of research with workshop participants. Previous reports were published in 2017 (874 KB) and 2018 (688 KB).

Project 2: Vocational Education and Training Tracer Study

This is an international project led by the Polish Erasmus+ NA involving the UK and another eight countries. It involves a standardised online survey, individual interviews and group interviews with VET learners. The online survey was launched in November 2018

Consultants are needed to analyse the survey data, conduct individual and group interviews with participants and produce a UK country report. The national reports will form the basis of a single transnational report.

Project 3: Research-based Analysis of Youth UK data analysis

The UK NA bas been involved in the RAY Network since 2014 participating in surveys of young people, youth workers and project staff involved in Erasmus+ projects. We now have two survey waves from 2015/16 and 2017/18 with approximately 1,500 responses. Consultants are required to analyse the UK data and produce a UK country report.
