Further Education Colleges

What We Do

Our key work with Colleges is to support employer engagement and to forge Partnership links with organisations that offer a strategic fit for post 16 vocational learning. We have significant experience with many PQQ and Due Diligence processes, both directly and via ‘In Tend’, and we are often the first phase of provider quality checks and procurement.

With the new Apprenticeship reforms, we have been working with FE Colleges on the RoATP application processes and the Invitation to Tender for direct contracting for SME market access. We are also in the process of identifying appropriate specialist Sub-contractor links for RoATP Employer Providers and for engagement within a new Consortium.

The change to Sub-c0ntracting rules from May 2017 have caused some confusion within the sector, but have a clear understanding of the SFA’s intentions within this part of the supply chain and can assist in helping through the changes required to meet audit compliance. We can also help facilitate and manage the relationships we create to ensure partnerships are successful and meet agreed outcomes. We can also create business cases with clear objectives to support further available procurement and bidding opportunities.

Please contact us to discuss how we can help your business to grow and prosper through our Provider links.
