Icon, the Institute of Conservation, is seeking to appoint a Consultant to deliver a business process review of Icon’s Professional Development services and products.

Icon has a suite of well-developed professional development services and products that it delivers through the work of staff and volunteers. These are highly regarded assets both within and outside Icon. They are:

• Professional Accreditation for Conservator-Restorers
• Conservation Technician Qualification
• Icon Internship and Skills in Practice Framework

We know that Icon’s professional development services and products are highly valued by conservators and by funders. We have evidence of this in surveys undertaken in our PACR Quinquennial Review (QR) 2013 and the long-term funding support we have had (which by mid-2015 will total £2.45M) from Heritage Lottery Fund to run our highly successful Internship bursary scheme. Nevertheless, it is important to review the method and cost of delivering these services from time to time. We are therefore seeking an experienced consultant with the appropriate track record and skills to review all of these processes.

For more information on why we are commissioning this review and how to tender please refer to this document.

Time and Date for return of tenders 12.00 noon 14th July 2014
