Why the work is being done NMITE want to establish 'Digital Excellence' and are looking for a partner who will help them create a future fit Digital Strategy and to establish what is expected of a leading HE institution in this area. They should also help to demonstrate the journey that NMITE needs to embark on to achieve this and sustain that momentum. NMITE want the Digital Strategy to be drafted by late March 2020 and finished early April 2020.
Problem to be solved Any partner must demonstrate a high degree of technical expertise and understanding of Digital Technology within the public / higher education sector and have a good appreciation for HE Pedagogy.
Working with NMITE, they must guide them through this critical stage of the NMITE journey to develop a high-level Digital Strategy identifying and capturing a vision, key principles and capabilities. The partner must apply these skills in supporting NMITE in becoming the institute for engineering in the UK.
This is a crucial piece of work for NMITE and any contract for this work must deliver the above as a minimum output. NMITE Board and SLT have flagged this work as a priority and will resource it appropriately to ensure that the timings and outcome are met.
Who the users are and what they need to do As a Higher Educational Institution, we need a partner to help us deliver a future fit Digital Strategy so that NMITE can become the leading institute for engineering in the UK.
