This invites bids from voluntary organisations in Scotland for very short sharp projects (up to 10 person days) where statistical or analytical skills could make a difference to your organisation. The way this would work is individuals or small groups of Scottish Government analysts (one or two people) act as an analytical consultancy to solve problems in your organisation and would be delivered at no cost to you.
This scheme has run each year since 2012. In total Scottish Government analysts have supported over 175 projects providing a total of around 600 days of support to 3rd sector organisations. Most placements were about either (a) evaluation methodologies – how you measure success (b) bringing together evidence around a subject or (c) data management/making the most of data you collect. However, you have the potential to look at other things, like data visualisation or how you structure a significant problem.
If this is something that you think your organisation could benefit from, please fill in the form below
and e mail it to Roger Halliday at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 1st March.
