Subcontracting Funding Summit - extra date

Subcontracting Funding Summit – extra date

7 June 2018, 10:00 - 15:30

The Principal York, Station Road, York, YO24 1AA

If you manage funding, data and/or contracts at an ESFA funded prime provider or subcontractor then this is one of those ‘not to be missed’ training days. Responding to demand, we’re repeating the summit delivered in March which received very positive feedback. See delegate feedback here (and selection below).

> Marion Gibbon, Data Quality & Compliance Manager at North Herts College said: “Excellent, as per normal lots of information given in a short amount of time.”

> Kevin Thompson Strategic, Commissioning Manager at South Tyneside Council said: “Very informative event with insightful speakers.”

> Laura Lewis-Davies Apprenticeship & Training Programmes Manager at the V&A said: “The event was incredibly useful. The facilitators were clearly experts in their respective fields and delivered the content with no-nonsense clarity – a refreshing approach to policy!” 

> Maureen Evans-Olsen, Apprenticeship Strategy Development at TJMorris Limited said: “It was a great event which delivered ‘what it said on the tin’ the information was factual and straightforward delivered in a style which was accessible and unambiguous.” 

This training day will cover best practice subcontracting for the funding of 16-19 Study Programmes, Adult Education Budget and Apprenticeships. It’s simply a brilliant opportunity to hear the latest funding, legal, quality and audit advice, along with invaluable materials to take away.
