UoD is inviting tenders for the supply of personalised careers advice and guidance and career coaching in target schools and sixth forms across Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire to inspire young people and support applications to higher education in (up to) 25 DANCOP schools per academic year.

In those (up to) 25 institutions, the provider must deliver 10 days of careers guidance and coaching to target DANCOP learners. These learners will also receive support directly from the organisation to support progression to Higher Education. The activities will primarily be delivered onsite at the schools.

The selected third party provider must have a proven track record in delivering career guidance and career coaching programmes with learners in schools across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. They must have be able to provide level 6/7 qualified career guidance practitioners to deliver the programme.

Careers sessions could be delivered as small group sessions or individual 1:1 sessions as agreed between the supplier, the DANCOP Partnerships Manager and the school contact.

These careers advice and guidance services will be required for an initial 12 month period with options to extend on an annual basis for 3 further years, subject to securing additional funding and successful performance of the contract, in the sole opinion of the University.

The following are within scope of this procurement:

— execution and delivery of the careers guidance services,

— knowledge, training and skills transfer as required,

— ongoing support service,

— account management including attendance at review meetings and provision of management and reporting information,

— future development opportunities within the scope of this tender to allow the University to take advantage of any developments in this area of work which may assist in improving operational performance.

The selected third party provider must have a proven track record in delivering career guidance and career coaching programmes with learners in schools across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. They must have be able to provide level 6/7 qualified career guidance practitioners to deliver the programme.
