Partners/Sub-contractors Policy 2016/17

 

Havering Adult College is an adult learning service delivered by Local Authority staff, managing a range of national and local priorities and implements the statutory powers of the Local Authority to secure full and part time education suitable to the requirements of persons who have reached the age of 19.

 

It is responsible for;

  • Providing a range of part time accredited and non accredited learning opportunities to meet the needs of individuals, employers and local communities.  Provision is concentrated at entry level, level one and level two, although some level three and above courses have been introduced to enhance progression and in response to learner, community and employer’s needs.
  • In conjunction with primary schools, children’s centres and wider community venues, delivering a range of Family Literacy, Family Numeracy, and Family Learning provision.
  • Providing indirect support for schools through the training of both Learning Support Assistants and Teaching Assistants as well as Support Work in Schools provision.
  • Delivering discrete provision in respect of learners with learning disabilities, commissioned by Adult Social Services. 

 

Havering Adult College commissions a number of providers to deliver adult education on its behalf, funded from its Skills Funding Agency Adult Skills grant, Adult Safeguarded Learning grant and Advanced Learning Loans facility through a formal sub-contractor arrangement.

 

In response to learner needs, Havering Adult College is continually reviewing its existing sub-contracted provider base, enabling Havering Adult College to meet local community needs by ensuring funding is made available to community groups and providers.

 

In order to access funding, all interested providers need to pass the Local Authority Pre Qualification Questionnaire (PQQ) process.  Success at the PQQ stage will add providers to this Approved Provider List for a period of three years, subject to the provider meeting contract monitoring requirements.

 

The PQQ sets out the information which is required by Havering Adult College in order to assess the suitability of potential providers in terms of their technical knowledge and experience, capability/capacity, organisational and financial standing to meet the requirement.  During the PQQ stage, the intention is to arrive at a short list of qualified potential providers for formal Invitation to Tender against the requirement of Skills Funded Agency provision.

 

To obtain a copy of the PQQ, or for any questions regarding the PQQ process, please contact;
