Ofcom seeks Media Literacy Trainers

As part of Ofcom’s Making Sense of Media work, they plan to train 1,000 UK professionals working with children and young people by March 2024. As a result, they have launched a tender to find organisations who can help achieve this goal. There are two lots available and organisations may apply for one lot or both:

  • Education and youth professionals
  • Children’s health, social work and community professionals

Ofcom’s expectation is that organisations have relevant experience working with a relevant group of professionals e.g. teachers, youth workers, social workers, children’s counsellors etc and that applicants will have already developed a media literacy training course and be ready to begin delivery soon after contracting. The tender is open to organisations across Europe but the training must be delivered in the UK.

The deadline for submission of tenders is 12:00 BST on 16 August 2023. To express interest or submit a question, please register on the Ofcom eTendering portal or contact Fay.Lant@ofcom.org.uk.
