Evaluation Consultant – Leach 100 Centenary Project

Evaluation of the Leach 100 Project (supported by ACE)

Invitation to tender

4K fixed fee


2020 marks the celebration of 100 years of the Leach Pottery, St Ives. Throughout 2020 the Leach Pottery will be curating a programme of events and activities to mark the importance of the pottery studio. As we look back, and towards the next 100 years, Leach Pottery will be curating a full, engaging and diverse range of activities, which will continue to position Leach Pottery as a leader in the world of contemporary ceramics whilst also maintaining the traditions and values of the past.

The Programme of activity will be funded by different sources and will require evaluations as part of the agreement.

We are currently seeking a Leach 100 Evaluator to:

  • Devise a formative method of evaluation to track the effectiveness of key strands of activity – prescribe, manage, train staff and oversee the process (much of the evidence accumulation will be done in-house).
  • Support the Leach Pottery (onsite core staff, volunteers, facilitators, education team, curatorial team) and partners involved with delivering external activities in establishing purposeful and effective evaluation/data collection methods and processes to feed into your findings.
  • Work with existing audience surveys to ensure continuity of data collection pre, during and post Leach 100.
  • There is existing baseline evidence so we want to ensure this informs part of the evidence against which to map the development of all parties involved.
  • Provide a summary of findings at regular stages, providing highlights as well as issues or areas for development – and making recommendations where appropriate.
  • Deliver quarterly reports throughout the project with a final report.

We expect the evaluation to take place from Jan 2020 – May 2021 and the final, comprehensive evaluation for the whole project completed and presented by the end of July 2021.

Closing Date: 22 November 2019

We will notify you by: Beginning of December 2019
