The Wheel: Nonprofit Leadership Academy - Request for Tenders

Nonprofit Leadership Academy - Request for Tenders to undertake the design, development, and initial delivery, of The Nonprofit Sector Leadership Academy


The Wheel is Ireland’s national association of community and voluntary organisations, charities and social enterprises. We work to strengthen non-profit organisations’ performance as well as seeking improvements in the non-profit sectoral infrastructure and environment. 

Leadership is vital to societal, organisational and team development. In our fast-changing world, the quality of leadership is even more necessary than ever. 

Independent research recently carried out, on behalf of The Wheel, points to a significant deficiency existing in training for leaders of community and voluntary organisations, whether paid professional staff or unpaid directors/management committee members/charity trustees. One of the six strategic objectives of The Wheel is to Foster excellent leadership within the sector.  In delivering on this objective, we continually strive to provide appropriate opportunities, supports, and resources, critical to leadership supports for the sector. Establishing this Nonproft Sector Leadership Academy is a major part of this ambition. Transformation requires leadership.    


The Wheel wishes to identify a contractor who will undertake the design, development and initial delivery of the Nonprofit Sector Leadership Academy, with the full scope of work outlined in the documentation available at the E-tenders link below. The Academy will take the form of a suite of upskilling and competency-based engagement opportunities, professional development and networking programmes for senior leaders working in Ireland’s charities and nonprofits.
