Full Tender Information: Attached document

Friends of the Earth is looking for a skilled facilitator to develop and deliver training for our network of 200 Local Action Groups, and for staff who work with our network. This will be part of a wider learning journey for our network and staff, as part of our commitment to becoming an anti-racist organisation.

We are looking for a facilitator who is experienced in the development and delivery of anti-racism training for activists. Knowledge (and preferably experience) of grassroots campaigning, organising, or activism is essential. We are open to expressions of interest from training collectives/organisations who have extensive experience of working together on these issues, where different trainers bring different skills and/or lived experiences.

How to apply: Please do not click on the apply button.  Please send us an application of maximum two sides of A4 in which you address the following questions to  

  • Why you believe you are equipped to take on this consultancy and why you would like to take it on.
  • The method you adopt for developing people in this area, and how you deal with difficult/awkward situations and questions.
  • Examples from your own experience or that you respect on developing organising and activism around anti-racism.
  • A brief outline of what you propose for the training and support package including:
  • A breakdown of your approach and method to designing, delivering and evaluating training of this nature.
  • How you might approach working with a network of this size and whether you might consider train the trainer elements, or skilling up certain staff and network members as part of this work to support the outcomes.
  • An outline of what this training and support package could look like. In order to reach as many people in the network as possible, we anticipate tenders will include more than just a single standalone training and that they include multiple entry points for the network to engage in this work. This might be an intro training, a longer training, coaching, written resources or something else.
  • How you would manage the different starting points of participants.
  • How you would propose to support network members of colour.
  • Any suggestions for how to best embed this work and advise on what an ongoing learning journey should look like (note, this wouldn’t have to be part of your role necessarily to enact these suggestions).
  • Estimated costings.
