2 Contract Details

2.1

Title

Testing Locations for a Range of Computer Based Tests Phase 3

2.2

Description of the goods or services required

learndirect is seeking to work with organisations which have:

– existing infrastructure in the specified geographical areas;

– capacity and capability to deliver across multiple geographical locations; and

– a strong track record of effectively providing similar services to those being tendered.

With a vision of “inspiring people to realise their potential”, learndirect is a leading provider of technology-lead training, including Adult Skills, Employability and Apprenticeships, and eAssessment Services.

learndirect has delivered computer based tests since 2005 and was recently awarded the UK Government’s Computer Based Testing Framework. This involves the delivery of a number of contracts on behalf of the UK Government, including the Driving Licence Theory test from September 2016 – a contract which delivers around 2 million tests per annum. As a result of that award we are seeking partners to deliver computer based tests that are awarded to learndirect via the Framework.

As a result of significant growth within the eAssessment sector, learndirect is undertaking a procurement exercise to ensure that candidates are offered:

– a flexible and convenient location at which to take their test – test centre locations are required across Great Britain and Northern Ireland in the first instance, and additional locations globally may be required in the future;

– a wide range of times at which to take their test;

– a secure environment in which to take the test; and

– a consistently high quality customer experience regardless of the test centre location.
