Organisational Development

We provide strategic development that makes a difference.  Whether helping to develop
new business models for a changing economic climate, putting in place an organisational change initiative or rolling out a sector-wide programme, we understand what makes change possible and what makes it stick.

BSV Associates are leading a strategic change programme on equality for Scotland’s universities and colleges. Working with the Equality Challenge Unit, Jenny and Kath are working with 17 different institutions to plan and implement a mainstreaming approach to equality and diversity.  We are also providing underpinning qualitative research to inform the further adaptation of good practice across the whole of Scotland’s post-16 sector.

Our work is backed up by a sound understanding of data and the role of monitoring, significant experience of staff engagement and development and first class project management skills.

Impact Assessment and Evaluation

We can provide evaluation and impact assessment services, whether it be for a small locally focused initiative or a large nationally focused programme.  We have worked with large public bodies, including a diverse range of Universities and FE colleges across the UK, national funding bodies, through to small locally based charitable organisations.

Through our evaluation service we aim to provide clients and their stakeholders with an opportunity to reflect on what has been learned and to put this learning to good use.  We enable this reflection through rigorous research design, ensuring that we provide clients with evidenced and clearly articulated learning points and recommendations for long term development.

The service we provide is highly bespoke and we work closely with clients to ensure that evaluation design and reporting meet specific requirements.  Unlike larger consultancies, we do not work to our own house style but rather our evaluation reports are as individual and diverse as our clients.

Curriculum Development

With experience across the whole of the learning spectrum we can offer a range of support to help you develop an inclusive and appropriate curriculum offer to meet the needs of your institution / organisation and your students / learners.

We can help you ensure the best learning outcomes in the context of further, higher, workplace and community education or training, facilitating the development of whole programmes, bespoke vocational provision and supported distance and e-learning packages.
Our areas of expertise include:

  • Curriculum development and quality enhancement support
  • Inclusive practice in respect of learning, teaching and assessment in further, higher and community education
  • Workforce development – leadership; management; organisational change
  • Bite size provision – workforce development; community engagement; access to further and higher education
