Closing date:26/10/2020 Job Description:

Hampshire Local Cultural Education Partnership – known as Hampshire CEP –

Invites proposals from individual consultants and/or consultancy organisations for work to strengthen the CEP’s role in improving access to quality arts and cultural experiences for children and young people in Hampshire.

 

In order to progress with our Transition Plan, CEP members have addressed a series of priority barriers to the CEP’s future growth and resilience:

 

  • Hampshire CEP has operated to now as a relatively informal network initially led by Hampshire Cultural Trust and, more recently, Hampshire County Council’s Music Service (HMS). An agreed Mission Statement, Values and Terms of Reference, plus Partnership Agreements are in place with partner organisations for particular collaborative pieces of work. CEP members are conscious that more formalised arrangements might create a more robust foundation from which to progress its ambitions.
  • The voice of children and young people has principally been fed into Hampshire CEP by adults who work with them or one-off consultation exercises, limiting the extent to which they are actively shaping the CEP’s agenda.
  • Internal CEP communication has primarily been via 6-weekly meetings and emails in between, whilst wider dissemination of its work has used the web and social media profiles of its member organisations, with no shared identity or digital presence.
  • The current worldwide pandemic has put on hold the implementation of the Transition Plan. Some steering group members are furloughed from their organisations, whilst other individuals are prioritising their capacity on their own.
  • Deliver appropriate Mental Health CPD for CEP members and teachers

 

To help the Hampshire CEP move to the next phase of its journey the Hampshire CEP Board is seeking a consultant to undertake an important programme of work:

 

  1. Governance and leadership review – to explore, recommend and advise on change management to achieve the most suitable and sustainable arrangements for effective governance, leadership and management of Hampshire CEP, including more strongly enabling the voice and leadership of Hampshire’s young residents in the work of the CEP.
  2. Communications and brand development – to advise on the establishment of a suitable externally-facing web and social media presence; to establish a sustainable, low-cost internal digital communications platform; – to draft the brief for a student project to create a brand identity for Hampshire CEP consistent with its mission and values.
  3. A fundraising case for support and action plan for the Hampshire CEP – to draft a template for a case for support that the CEP can adapt for different funding opportunities; to identify potential funding streams and propose a realistic fundraising action plan to support the CEP in achieving its goals.

 

In keeping with its values and ethos, Hampshire CEP expects the successful consultants to identify, consult and actively engage stakeholders in the work, including children and young people; cultural organisations, schools, colleges and youth agencies, both those that are currently involved in the CEP and those that are not; Hampshire County Council and Artswork, Arts Council’s Bridge organisation for the South East, who are investing in this work.
