The National Institute of Corrections (NIC) is soliciting proposals from organizations, groups, or individuals to enter into a cooperative agreement for an 18-month period to begin no later than September 15, 2013. Work under this cooperative agreement will involve the development of a competency-based, blended training curriculum that will provide corrections professionals with the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to teach qualified staff how to train facilitators to use Thinking for a Change(T4C) 3.1. Specifically, this is a call to develop a Training for Trainers (T4T) curriculum. Applicants are encouraged to propose innovative designs to achieve the tasks set forth in this solicitation. The curriculum must contain components of both distance and face-to-face learning, with an emphasis on choosing the most effective and efficient delivery option available to achieve learning objectives. The curriculum will be housed and operated through NICÂ’s online learning management system (LMS), the NIC Learning Center. All components of the curriculum must be compatible with the Learning Center, and a successful applicant will have a team member with the knowledge and skill to work with NIC staff on this aspect of the course. This project will be a collaborative venture with the NIC Academy Division.
