UK National Agency seeking external assessors

The UK National Agency is seeking to appoint a pool of external assessors to assess funding applications and project reports submitted under the Erasmus+ programme.

Applicants need to have knowledge and expertise in the sector(s) of the programme for which they wish to assess: vocational education and training (VET), adult education (AE), higher education (HE), schools and youth.

Tenders are invited from experienced individuals with knowledge and expertise of these sectors in the UK and Europe.

The role of the assessors is essential to ensure fair, impartial, consistent and accurate assessment of project applications and reports.

The NA uses the feedback and scores provided by the assessors to make award decisions and to assist applicants to improve the quality of applications and reports. It is, therefore, essential that applicants have a proven track record of high-quality, customer-focused assessment of major funding applications and project reports.

The scope of the assessments will include Key Actions 1 and 2 for HE, VET, AE, and schools. In youth Key Action 3 is also included.

Training will be provided to all successful applicants who are available to start work promptly and can demonstrate availability through the assessment periods. The successful applicants will be accountable to the British Council and Ecorys UK, the UK National Agency for Erasmus+.

To register your interest, please visit the British Council's procurement portal where you will need to, firstly, register your details and then register your interest against the project “Erasmus+ External Assessor” tender.

The portal will be open from 24 September until 6pm on 18 October 2018 to register interest/post questions, with the deadline for receipt of applications being 6pm on 19 October.
