PARTNERS

EAST SUSSEX COLLEGE IS PLEASED TO BE WORKING WITH OUR EXTERNAL PARTNERS TO CREATE NEW LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES

To support East Sussex College to offer a range of learning and progression opportunities, we have developed a network of trusted partners.

Our partners offer skills training and qualifications within the South East and nationally across a number of subject areas. Each partner is quality assured by East Sussex College to ensure that all training delivered meets our high standards.

WORKING WITH US

For any potential organisations interested in collaborating with us to deliver a range of Apprenticeship standards and frameworks as part of the East Sussex College Group’s Training and Education Delivery Partnership provision and in order to ensure competition, transparency and value for money, this procurement will be conducted in accordance with the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 (or as may be amended) through the application of a ‘Light Touch’ process. You will therefore be required to register your organisation for free on the e-tendering portal https://suppliers.multiquote.com.

Once you have registered and been provided with your username and password you will be able to find the relevant Suitability Supplier Questionnaire under reference CA4984 where you will need to complete the questionnaire and submit it via the e-tendering portal to be considered.

Please note that registration and completion of an application is not a guarantee for being accepted as an ESCG subcontractor and that any funding will be available.

If, or when, we have funding available we will review these documents to assess which potential partners closest match the college’s strategic aims and at that time, if successful we will be in further contact with those organisations. When looking to diversify and grow our provision, the college ensures that this is in line with our Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) sectors. Due to the location of our campuses we sit within two LEPs, Coast to Capital and the South East LEP.

SUB-CONTRACTING DETAILS AND MANAGEMENT FEES

Since 2013/14 the Skills Funding Agency (SFA) Funding Rules included a new requirement for all SFA funded providers to publish a Fees and Charging Policy that outlines the fees colleges and providers are planning to set for sub-contracting in each academic year.

Higher Education

The college may also develop additional Higher Education work with partners and this separate policy outlines the process for developing this with new or existing partners.
