The Apprenticeship Training Dynamic Marketplace is available to all public sector organisations, including central government departments, agencies and public bodies, wider public sector organisations, and charities.
Use it to buy apprenticeship training courses, which include the learners’ end-point assessments. The courses can be generic or bespoke to you. Training can be in a classroom, in a workplace, online, or a combination of these. You can also use it to just buy learners’ end-point assessments.
This agreement is mainly used for apprentice training and assessments in England, but you can include additional service requirements for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. It covers over 500 apprenticeship standards. All our suppliers are registered with the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA).
With call-off contracts from this agreement, you can pay for services using apprenticeship levy funds. You don’t have to be an organisation that pays the apprenticeship levy in order to use these funds or use this agreement. Current ESFA funding rules apply.
This agreement uses a dynamic purchasing system (DPS) to help you find relevant suppliers through a filtering system. There’s the option of doing a rapid award procurement, which can be completed in as little as a day. Read the ‘How to buy’ tab below for details.
