Thank you for your interest in supporting us with our SFA OLASS tenders

Newcastle College Group/Intraining hold one of the largest SFA contracts within the United Kingdom, and are one of the largest providers of Adult Apprenticeships with vast experience of successfully delivering educational, Skills Training and Welfare to Work Services.

We are proud of our achievements in these sectors and the recognition we have earned, as well as being endorsed by OFSTED as a Grade 1 provider.

We have an excellent past track record of directly delivering these contracts and working successfully with client groups and other support agencies to deliver measurable and effective results.

Newcastle College Group / Intraining have a clear vision of how to deliver these contracts to best meet the needs of the client and will be submitting competitive and innovative tenders for the following regions:

  • East Midlands.
  • West Midlands.
  • Yorkshire and Humber.
  • North East.

We are interested in hearing from organisations who have pertinent and relevant experience of working with people in custody/offenders/ex-offenders.

The opportunities to work with us are around 2 main areas, although if you believe you can add value to our proposition outside these areas, we would be delighted to hear from you as well.

  1. Sub-Contracted Delivery Partners. Organisations that have the ability, capacity and credibility to support our offering through direct delivery of services as a sub-contractor partner. Obviously your organisation must have a proven and credible track record of dealing with this client group and type of contract. We envisage that the opportunity to work in partnership with ourselves in delivering these services will evolve throughout the life of the contracts and want to hear from organisations that can support us in this either from day one or further down the line as opportunities arise.
  2. Specialist Support Organisations. Those of you who provide the additional support services to our clients to enable them to address and overcome specific barriers or needs that enable them to better achieve their goals. Obviously experience in working with and a proven track record of achieving results for these types of clients is essential. We are interested in hearing from and working with those organisations who genuinely help and support our clients both pre and post release from custody.
