Issue details

Commissioning Adult Learning in Community Settings

Lifelong Learning, Skills and Communities receive an annual grant from the Education Skills Funding Agency (ESFA). A proportion of this grant is used to commission adult learning provision from third sector providers to be delivered in their communities.


The current sub-contracts with suppliers for the delivery of the service terminate in July 2019.  Therefore a further commission needs to take place to ensure continuity of service from this date.  This will require a procurement to be undertaken in compliance with domestic and EU legislation.
