On behalf of the CIoS Skills Hub and CIoS Local Enterprise Partnership, CDC wishes to procure an apprenticeship campaign for the period Autumn 2020 - January 2023.

We want a 'fresh' campaign which continues to build awareness of Apprenticeships and Cornwall Apprenticeships within the County's SME community. A compelling campaign, featuring locally curated content and apprenticeship employer case studies which should be relatable to our employers. The Campaign will not only need to clearly tell & show employers the steps to easily engage with Apprenticeships, but also where to go for impartial information, advice and guidance - namely, Cornwall Apprenticeships and CIoS Skills Hub.

The elements and outcomes the CIoS Skills Hub and CIoS Local Enterprise Partnership would like to see through this Innovation Fund Apprenticeship Campaign include (but not limited to, as ideas are welcomed):
- Cornwall Apprenticeship website development (wordpress)
- Social media activity
- Case studies/content creation

Applicants may wish to read/consider suggestions and comments made within the 2020 report of the evaluation of the previous Cornwall Apprenticeship campaign (Annexe C). Plus, align responses with the CIoS Employment and Skills Strategy to support achievement of some key Apprenticeship aims within the Strategy, including increasing the awareness and demand for higher/degree level Apprenticeships.


The budget available for the Cornwall Apprenticeship Campaign is a maximum of £44,000 to include all expenses excluding VAT and the Skills Hub is looking to commission one lead delivery organisation to design and deliver the Campaign for the period until January 2023.

For full details please see the Invitation to Tender (ITT) and associated documentation.
