Tender and Funding Application Writing for Education and Training
The education and training sector is diverse and includes a variety of services and requirements. Ultimately, the education and training sector is underpinned by its need to access sustainable funding and holistically facilitate greater learning opportunities.
Every funding application and tender in education varies, so it is important to evaluate this from the outset to enable a greater understanding of every bid’s requirements. The desired outcome can vary from introducing new technology to providing alternative curriculums to improve outcomes for learners. We have helped many education providers, including:
- Training Providers
- Apprenticeship Providers
- Independent Schools
- Alternative Education Providers
- Higher and Further Education Establishments
Our recent areas of main focus have been within apprenticeship and alternative education provision.
The Apprenticeship Levy policy was implemented in April 2017 to enable UK employers to fund new apprenticeship schemes and ultimately, help invest more money to assist in increasing work opportunities.
As part of this, the policy ensures any employer with a wage bill over £3M per annum must pay a levy of 0.5%, which can only be offset against apprenticeships. Not only was this designed to help fund new opportunities, but also develop the quality of apprenticeships in the UK. As such, there has been a requirement for levy-paying employers to have an effective apprenticeship programme. Therefore, this has led to significant demand and procurement of apprenticeship providers that can best manage the levy.
In terms of economic impact, the levy aims to help support productivity through the increase in occupational training and careers.
