Invitation to Tender
Title: Develop a Reader Development e-learning Module for Public Library Staff

Deadline for receipt of tender proposals: 27/3/17 @ 5pm

During September 2016 SCL, in partnership with The Reading Agency held a round table with key stakeholders to test our current definitions and practice in Reader Development activity. This was followed by a piece of research to gain a better understanding of the current reader development practice, innovation and reach within public libraries, and to identify current and future training needs.

A key training gap identified was the ‘Soft’ skills which are required, such as initiating conversations about reading with the public, and we wish to develop an e-learning module for public library staff to address the range of skills that are required to support our workforce to engage effectively with customers to enhance their reading experience.

SCL are looking for the successful organisation to consult with the public library sector and liaise with our online training provider to create an e-learning module for public library staff to address the range of skills that are required to support our workforce to engage effectively with customers to enhance their reading experience
