GC Business Growth Hub (the Hub) wishes to appoint a number of service providers to enter into a Framework Contract for the delivery of leadership development to owners, directors and senior leaders that will develop their skills, knowledge and expertise to enable growth within their business. The programme will target businesses that employ twenty or more staff and have the capacity to create jobs and increase turnover/sales. For those businesses with less than 10 staff, individual business cases may be put forward if they have high growth potential for them to be considered for the programme.
Programme delivery will continue through to September 2021, and could be extended beyond this period subject to funding.
The successful suppliers will be expected to deliver high quality training/development across Greater Manchester. These suppliers will form part of a framework of providers and will be called off by the Hub to work with named executives from eligible businesses.

Providers will be expected to identify and refer eligible business with 10+ FTE to the Hub. Businesses will also be referred to the programme from alternative sources. All businesses regardless of referral source will be required to complete the application process and meet ERDF and growth criteria. A supplier is not guaranteed to be called off to work with a business, regardless of the referral source.

The Provider is required to design and deliver 12 hours of intensive support on specific leadership areas. All 12 hours of delivery must be face to face regardless of delivery style chosen. The support must be able to be delivered either entirely on a one to one basis, a blend of one to one and internal group of executives or a blend of one to one and external group of mixed business executives, and be flexible and tailored to meet the specific needs of an individual business.
