The Education and Skills Funding Agency have launched their Tender 30232 for apprenticeship providers wishing to deliver apprenticeships to employers who do not pay the levy. Revised Deadline – Friday, 8th September 2017 at 12 noon.
The main announcement and the ESFA 6 minute narrated briefing presentation can be found HERE
The Tender can be accessed through the BRAVO online e-tendering portfolio and you will need to be already listed as an approved apprenticeship provider on the register of Apprenticeship Training Organisations to apply – If you are listed on the RoATP, you should have received notification already via BRAVO. If you have not, please make sure that your institution’s contact details are up-to-date.
The main body of the tender comprises of 17 narrative questions, totalling over 65,000 characters, if you used the maximum available. The questions cover similar topics to the Autumn 2016 ITT, but are broken down into individual questions requiring more detailed responses.
The initial support offered by UVAC during August is included in our event calendar, which can be downloaded HERE and includes webinars for those who are new to ESFA /SFA or apprenticeship tender applications, plus a separate webinar for those who submitted an ITT previously and just need an update on changes, alongside a surgery day for those seeking more detailed 1-1 advice from the UVAC team.
Information on how to register on the events is included in the calendar.
