Invitation to Tender: Provision of Functional Skills

By 10th January 2019 April 2nd, 2019 One Comment

Game Changer is a £3.1 million project funded by the Big Lottery Fund and European Social Fund, which will run until November 2019, designed to support 1035 young people aged 15 to 24 across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

This invitation is a tendering opportunity for training providers to deliver Functional Skills Maths and English to young people living in Cornwall who are at risk of becoming NEET or who are NEET up to Level 2. The aim of the provision is for participants to obtain an accredited qualification up to Level 2. Young people who have no prior L2 qualification are entitled to funded support from SFA to achieve basic skills qualifications. The expectation is that the applicant would draw down the relevant/ appropriate main stream funding. The Game Changer resources are to provide additionality to ensure YP can access and achieve. This resource is not a replacement for mainstream funding.

For more details, download the full Invitation to tender Basic Skills document.

To apply, you must complete two documents; the Tender Response Document and the Targets for Functional Skills Tender spreadsheet. The spreadsheet is a means for you to state how many each month you will either sign up and provide basic skills to, how many people you will support as a means of achieving their basic skills and/or how many you will provide support to in order for the young people to progress onto something else i.e. employment/ education or training.

When ready, email both documents to Louisa Luke, Contract Manager for the Game Changer programme, on louisa.luke@realideas.org before 9am Monday 11th Feburary 2019.
