Tender for the Higher Education Winter Starts Contract Open

Leicester College are looking for potential partner organisations to deliver Higher National Diploma Qualifications in business.

We are launching the tender application process to establish a Higher Education Winter Starts Contract in partnership.

The main aim is to continue to broaden the participation with the College Higher Education provision, reaching more students, accessing further skills and creating opportunities to improve the business of education. This recruitment of partner organisations will enable Leicester College to counteract any flux in participation and to continue to meet the rising demand for affordable, high-quality Higher Education opportunities delivered in areas where affordable education will raise participation in marginalised or underrepresented groups. Building on the experience of students should enable the College to create further partnerships and collaborations with employers over a broader geographical area and develop new opportunities for students to progress into work and education.

The Higher Education Winter Starts Contract will start from 1 February 2019 to 30 November 2020 and contracts may be awarded anytime during the process.

There will be funding support available up to the value of £739,800 per academic year. This is the approximate value assigned to this Higher Education Winter Starts Contract Start. This will be awarded in lots, within the framework throughout the year. The framework does not guarantee a call off contract being awarded.

The tender process timescales are as follows:

9 January 2019 – Tender applications open

28 January 2019 – Deadline for request for clarification

4 February 2019 – Deadline for receipt of tenders

11 February 2019 – Higher Education Winter Starts Contract Awarded – Standstill period begins

18 February 2019 – Higher Education Winter Starts Contract Start Date
