Request for Tender: Strategic Plan 2023–2026 

AONTAS are coming to the end of our current Strategic Plan (2019-2022), A Vision for Educational Equality. Since 2016, AONTAS has grown in size (resources and staff team) and scope of influence in adult learning advocacy working on an all-island basis nationally and at EU level.

Given the progress of AONTAS over the course of the current plan, consideration needs to be made on:

  1. The strategic position of AONTAS post-2022
  2. How we demonstrate the impact of our work to the Board, our members, our funders and the general public.

Requirements

AONTAS is seeking a Consultant(s) to support the development of a new plan for the next four years from 2023 to 2026. Taking a holistic approach to the Strategic Planning process we require the following:

Development of the AONTAS Strategic Plan 2023-2026

  • Take stock of achievements of the AONTAS Strategic Plan 2018-2022
  • Scope out the current adult education policy and practice landscape
  • Frame the Strategic Plan in terms of vision, mission, goals, objectives, target groups, target areas, strategic actions and activities/projects
  • Define appropriate methods for measuring the goals, objectives and actions of the Strategic Plan 2023-2026.

Working with the Consultant(s), the development of the Strategic Plan will be primarily supported by the AONTAS Board - Governance Subcommittee, the CEO and with a Project Manager from the staff team. Progress will be reported to the AONTAS Board.
