The Sheffield College seeks to work with high-quality sub-contractors who can deliver the highest quality teaching and learning which facilitates progression into employment, further education or higher learning.

The College’s aim is to enter into agreements for the provision of high-quality training which meets a local need which the College is unable to meet and which does not compete with its own service provision. The College is particularly keen to develop the breadth and volume of its apprenticeship provision through working with sub-contractors.
The framework will be reviewed annually, subject to performance. All contracts awarded must be fulfilled under funding requirements, the majority of which will be in-line with the College academic year ending 31.7.2017.
