Background The Department for Education's (DfE) vision is for a highly educated society in which opportunity is more equal for children and young people, no matter what their background or family circumstances. There is strong evidence that leadership and the quality of teaching and learning are the most important factors in improving pupil outcomes. NCTL, an executive agency of the Department for Education (DfE), believes that it is middle leaders, such as heads of department, heads of year and those in whole school middle leadership roles who are best placed to improve the quality and consistency of teaching in schools and in tackling the challenge of in-school variation. However, we also know that some schools struggle to recruit excellent middle leaders and that more needs to be done to attract the best leaders and teachers to the schools that need them the most. This pilot programme will seek to determine the drivers and barriers to encouraging the movement of our best middle leaders into challenging schools; and to establish the impact of strong middle leaders in raising standards and building capacity across the school system. The new contract The new contract being tendered is to enable a pilot programme where up to 100 excellent middle leaders will be seconded into England's most challenging schools for 1 year from January 2016. The National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL), an executive agency of the DfE, is therefore seeking 1 national provider (or consortium) to: 1) Design, develop and deliver a pilot programme to second up to 100 talented middle leaders into England's most challenging schools from January 2016 for 1 year. 2) Deliver the programme with national reach and with a particular focus in the East of England region, a high priority area where up to 30 of the secondments are expected to take place. The anticipated maximum whole life contract cost will be within the estimated range of 4 000 000 GBP to 4 600 000 GBP (inclusive of all expenses and exclusive of VAT). VAT (where applicable) will be at the GB prevailing rate. Please note that Contract requirements will be subject to available financial resources, supplier performance and flexibility to meet changing demands.

Legal form to be taken by the grouping of suppliers, contractors or service providers to whom the contract is to be awarded
Company, Prime Contractor, Joint Venture, or Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV). In the event that a consortia bid is successful the Authority will anticipate the creation of an appropriate legal vehicle/SPV to provide satisfaction on capacity. If the potential supplier bidding for the requirement is part of a consortium joint venture or SPV, the Authority will require full details of the consortium joint venture or SPV. Potential suppliers should provide details of the actual or proposed percentage shareholding of the constituent members within the consortium in a separate attachment. If a consortium is not proposing to form a corporate entity, full details of alternative proposed arrangements should be provided in the attachment. Please note that NCTL reserves the right to require a successful consortium to form a single legal entity. The Authority recognises that arrangements in relation to consortia may (within limits) be subject to future change. Potential consortia should therefore respond in the light of the arrangements as currently envisaged. Potential consortia are reminded that any future proposed change in relation to consortia must be notified to the Authority so that it can make a further assessment by applying the selection criteria to the new information provided. If an SPV formed by a single organisation to separate liabilities from the parent company then NCTL would require a parent company guarantee.
