ESFA Delivery of Traineeship Reforms and Expansion Programme Tender Published

The Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) has finally published the 19-24 year-old traineeship tender that was initially announced in July 2020.

The total value of the procurement is £65m, with separate budgets for each of the 9 English regions. Additionally, there is a minimum contract value of £250,000 for the initial funding period from 1 February to 31 July 2021.

Tenders have to submitted by 17:00 on 28 October 2020 via the Department for Employment (DfE)’s Jaggaer portal (note this is not the same portal as the ESFA’s Bravo portal previously used for nearly all recent ESFA tenders).

Finally, as always, don’t hesitate to get in touch if you need help with submitting a tender to deliver 19 to 24 traineeships.
