Expressions of Interest for development of Learning Resources

Expressions of Interest for development of Learning Resources

Closing Date: Thursday 20th January

Crewe Town Council is looking to engage an experienced learning practitioner to research, develop, design and create digital learning resources for use in schools and the community. The resources should stimulate discovery and include setting appropriate activities.

The 4 July 2022 will mark 185 years since the first train passed through Crewe. The railway shaped the town, providing houses, shops, public baths, a hospital, schools, churches and a park, as well as the world famous engineering works. However, Crewe is much more than the railway.  It was home to a cloth industry, a world leading manufacturer of veterinary pharmaceuticals, the Rolls Royce Merlin Engine, Bentley, Whitby Morrison Ice Cream Vans, LMS Covenanter Tanks and Owl Telescopes. It also boasts World Champions, World Record Holders and political activists, as well as holding an interesting link to royal transport.

Crewe Town Council wishes to commission two learning resource packs.  The first should develop an overview of Crewe's 185 year history. It should identify important people, places and events to showcase the diversity and influence of the town's heritage. The second should focus on celebrating the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. It should highlight Crewe's links to royalty.  It should also help users uncover how past jubilees have been celebrated and include details on how these could be recreated.

To support Expressions of Interest, please find the Full Brief, and supporting documents, A Heritage Strategy for Crewe and Crewe Heritage Facts. For further information please contact the Heritage Development Officer via heritage@crewetowncouncil.gov.uk or 07551 234557.

Expressions of Interest should be submitted to the Heritage Development Officer via heritage@crewetowncouncil.gov.uk no later than 12pm (midday) on Thursday 20 January 2022.
