PURCON 879 – Apprenticeships Providers

University of East Anglia


  • Education and training services – 80000000
  • Personal development training services – 80570000

Closing date: 07 June 2020


The UEA has decided to carry out a full review of its apprenticeship offering. We are looking to carry out a process in this remit to identify training providers [providers] for a wide range of apprenticeships. Until now, apprenticeships have not been offered on a large scale at the UEA. Our aim is to source providers that can support the UEA to maximise its levy commitments by delivering apprenticeships to new and existing employees.

Our focus is on ensuring our apprentice learners have a high quality learning experience. We will measure provider success based on qualitative feedback, completion rates, % with highest pass rates (under new standards), retention of apprentices, quality and relevancy of teaching & learning, and career progression of apprentices.

At this stage we envisage a high percentage will be delivered from just a few apprenticeship standards that match up to common roles across the University. These will be called High Volume Apprenticeships. The rest will be specific to the relevant faculties/business areas – Business Specific Apprenticeships. The list below identifies the types of apprenticeship standards we are most likely to utilise, but this may change in time. All learners work in Norwich.

We are tendering to:

  1. Identify a Preferred Provider that can deliver all the High Volume Apprenticeships as well as any business specific apprenticeships within their capability.
  2. Identify apprenticeship training providers that can deliver any Business Specific Apprenticeships, either in isolation or in any combination within their capability
