The British Academy is the UK’s national academy for the humanities and social sciences. We mobilise these disciplines to understand the world and shape a brighter future.

The Academy is seeking to commission a Supplier or Suppliers for three training programmes tailored to its research fellowship award holders, specifically the Academy’s Newton International Fellowships although the opportunity may be opened up more widely.

The three training programmes are as follows and the Academy is seeking a Supplier or Suppliers on a one-year pilot basis (please note it is possible to bid for an individual, selection or all Lots), after which a decision will be taken whether and/or how to continue such training and development courses more long-term:

  2. Lot 2 refers to the development and delivery of a training programme for an Introduction to Management and Leadership in Academic Research Environments.
  3. Lot 3 refers to the tender for the development and delivery of an Entrepreneurship & Innovation training programme.
