Thank you for expressing an interest in forming a partnership with the ITS Group. We would like to develop our supply chain with a small number of providers, who are experts in working with young people and adults, in order to enhance and complement our current SFA and EFA provision for the delivery of Apprenticeships and Study Programmes.
We may require subcontractors to help us engage young people, develop and deliver individualised programmes of support, to help young people and adults progress into further education or employment and training (Apprenticeships).
In order to be considered, your organisation must be registered on the UK Register of Learning Providers and have a UKPRN number and we would prefer you to be on the SFA Register of Training Organisations (RTO). We are interested in working with organisations which are accredited to deliver a range of vocational courses, or who specialise in a particular subject area, or are focused on a particular geographical area which is separate to our own.
The application process will consist of three stages which are outlined below:
The first step potential partners must take is to complete the Expression of Interest (EOI) Form. This form provides us with each potential partner’s basic delivery experience, geographical coverage, quality of service and financial standing relating to the activity.
If the stage one process meets the required standard we will enter into negotiations and proceed with further due diligence to collate evidence of policies, processes, accreditations and insurance. A site visit will be undertaken to ensure premises are safe, fit for purpose and compliant.
Applicants will present their delivery model to a panel from the ITS Group and will be informed of the outcome within 5 working days.
