Definitions[edit source]

The aim will be to train active Wikipedians and educators...

and then below

The number of Wikimedians...

There is a difference in my mind. Wikimedians would be larger set that Wikipedians. Can somebody clarify? LoopZilla (talk) 09:05, 9 April 2012 (UTC)

Hopefully this is an oversight and they mean Wikimedians. WereSpielChequers (talk) 15:01, 10 April 2012 (UTC)

Geography[edit source]

I'm hoping that whoever gets the train the trainers gig will be offering a UK wide service and either a series of events around the country or trainees will be compensated if they have expensive journeys. But it would be nice to see this in the spec, otherwise you could end up with the gig going to someone who was going to run everything in one place and seemed fractionally cheaper than someone who always intended to send their trainers on the road.

Absolutely. This is the first step to create a pool of really competent trainers who can deliver to local people and institutions. To be honest the initial training is likely to be in London but expenses will be paid. From there on we should aim to be doing Train The Trainers sessions all over the UK. I see this as a five year project. I have tried to keep the spec simple but will take this into account. Jon Davies WMUK (talk) 14:29, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

Training others[edit source]

WMUK objectives include "Promoting contribution to Open knowledge". While I understand the tender is for training Wikipedia contributors in the UK I hope there is enough flexibility to extend it to classes outside the UK (in Ireland, English colonies) or contributors to other projects (wikitravel, Appropedia, Open street maps) if suitable arrangements are agreed.
