Any organisations which expressed interest but didn’t complete the tender now have an opportunity to do so.
Following the recent large scale redundancies announced at Tata Steel (Rotherham and Stocksbridge sites) Deregulated SFA funds have been allocated to support those effected in gaining alternative employment. In addition, any supply chain employees who are affected by the reduced business on these sites are also eligible.
Organisations interested in delivering these programmes on behalf of RNN Group (Rotherham and North Notts Colleges) are required to complete the PQQ\ITT on in-tend. Applicants will then be notified if they have been successful. Final approval could be subject to an onsite visit or further clarification on relevant points of the tender.
In addition to standard fundable programmes eligible clients will be able to access relevant training courses which are not usually fundable via ASB contract rules and regulations. Any courses individuals undertake must be requested following initial advice and guidance and be relevant to the current job market, in order to enhance people’s chances of gaining sustainable employment as a result of the training delivered.
Most courses will be relatively short, will be delivered locally wherever possible, and must take into account current skills and experience. DWP will need to confirm agreement with attendance requirements whilst individuals are claiming any type of benefits. Courses available could be providing new skills or updating existing skills in relevant occupational areas. In addition to vocational skills, clients will have the opportunity to improve their general maths, English, IT and employability skills.
Passing the tender threshold score 70 % does not guarantee any levels of contract, as all delivery will be dependent on client needs. The delivery contracts will commence from February 2016 onwards and will be expected to be fully complete by no later July 2017 (we anticipate completion will be much earlier than the final date).
