RFP Learning Model Development for Cohort-Based Early Childhood Leadership
The Maryland Early Childhood Leadership Program (MECLP), in partnership with UMBC’s Sherman Center for Early Learning in Urban Communities, seeks a highly qualified and experienced consultant (or consulting firm) to develop an innovative learning model, content and training materials for a cohort-based leadership development program in early childhood education.
The research-based learning model will incorporate best practices in key leadership competencies and reflect break-through thinking in education design. The program will be delivered through a cohort design of approximately 12-14 people comprised of early and mid-career individuals with a broad range of backgrounds (e.g., roles, geography, race, ethnicity, gender); in early childhood and related fields. The 12-month hybrid model will include face-to-face sessions as well as online modules. The model will be project-based and is expected to include coach/mentoring support, select readings and homework, as well as opportunities for field trips and guest presentations. An August or October 2019 start date is expected for the initial pilot cohort.
To express interest, please send application, including cost estimate, to Laurel Bassett at firstname.lastname@example.org by January 8, 2019.
