To enable MidKent College to offer the most comprehensive training provision possible we have worked in partnership with other providers for a number of years to support the delivery of the College's strategic priorities, NEET engagement, community, apprenticeships and other workplace learning.
Our partnership with our network of sub-contractors enables the College to meet the needs of local employers and students across a broad range of sectors within the geographical area of Medway and Maidstone that complements existing provision undertaken by MidKent College.
The contracting process
For 2018/19 contracts have been awarded to our existing preferred partners, who were approved following our formal tender process carried out in 2017/18 in full compliance with the SFA/EFA Funding Rules 2018/19 to ensure providers are legal and fully solvent.
Utilising the InTend system, our partners were invited to complete a pre-qualifying questionnaire (PQQ) and invited to tender (ITT) for 2018/19 against the College priorities. For 2018/19, three existing partners were offered contracts based on performance, quality of provision and financial viability.
Each partner is quality-assured by the MidKent College, ensuring the teaching, learning and assessment provided by one of our partners meets our high standards and provides the same level of learning experience that we strive to maintain.
Our franchise partners for the 2017/18 academic year are:
Learning Curve Group
Medway Youth Trust
Our partners and stakeholders are:
Cskills - CITB
Kent County Council
