The British Council is seeking a supplier to identify the information needs of user groups and to define the specifications and functionality of a Going Global Partnerships programme dashboard that is both aligned with the scope and scale of programme data being collected, the methods of data provision, and meets user needs.

The British Council's Going Global Partnerships Programme is for those working in higher education and technical and vocational education and training (TVET). It provides opportunities for governments, national sector bodies, higher education institutions, researchers, academics and students in tertiary education (TE) around the world to collaborate and partner with the UK.

Through working together with 54 countries in mutually beneficial partnerships, the programme aims to contribute to stronger, more inclusive and globally connected tertiary systems which support economic and social growth. Alongside this, the programme deepens educational and cultural ties between our countries and builds friendly and trusted relations between people in the UK and their international partners.

The Going Global Partnerships programme represents a new way of working for the British Council by pulling together a large portfolio of tertiary education interventions into one transformational programme.
