Does your university or college offer apprenticeship training? Are you looking to increase your commercial revenue streams?
If the answer to these 2 questions is yes, and you haven’t signed up to join our apprenticeship training marketplace yet we’d encourage you to do so.
Why sign up?
There is a great deal of discussion at the moment about the importance of apprenticeships to our economic recovery.
By joining our apprenticeship training marketplace you will have the opportunity to provide apprenticeship standards and end-point assessments to organisations across the whole of the public sector, including central government, local authorities and NHS trusts.
How does the marketplace work?
The marketplace helps public sector organisations access their apprenticeship levy funds to support their workforce planning strategies and meet their statutory apprenticeship targets.
A digital filtering system makes it simpler for customers to find suitable Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) registered suppliers.
The marketplace also supports localism and social value. Suppliers can join at any time and bid for business either locally, regionally or nationally. You can find out more on the marketplace web page.
How to sign up
You will need to be ESFA registered and have your DUNS number to hand.
First of all, you need to register on the Supplier Registration Service for Government if you are not already. To do this access the Supplier Registration Service for Government, select ‘register as a supplier’ and complete the short online form.
Once you have done this go to the Dynamic Purchasing System Marketplace, select ‘Apprenticeship Training’ and from here you can download the bid pack, which provides full instructions on how to become a supplier on the marketplace. You can then ‘Access as a supplier’ to register to be on the marketplace.
If joining the marketplace is of interest to your university or college and you need any further support please email us and reference ‘RM6102 supplier registration’ in the subject line.
