Before moving any further we must first understand that what is a consulting agreement? A consulting agreement is an agreement between a client and a consultant through which the client wishes to get certain services of the consultant for a specified period of time and with a specific amount of compensation for the services rendered.
The agreement should clearly state the duties which you as a consultant will perform and any promises done by the client in this regard must be stated therein. Furthermore, it should mention the number of hours the consultant will work alone and the specified hours in which he will work with the client.
An academic consulting agreement is an agreement between any educational body and a consultant. It is possible that the educational body is doing some research work related to the field of education and for this purpose, it hires the services of a consultant who may help them carry out the research by providing necessary information.
It is always good to have two at a table rather than one as with two you end up serving with more innovative ideas. The same is the case with academic consulting. Through this, the client benefits himself by adding up new things in his curriculum which may include any technological changes which might benefit him in the future. It also helps to make improvements in the current curriculum.
