Plymouth City Council has a contract with the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) to provide education, training and skills provision to the population of Plymouth.

Plymouth City Council are currently planning a competitive tender exercise to select sub-contractors to deliver Adult and Youth Education Services provision for the next few years. New contracts are expected to commence on 1st August 2022.

In preparation for this we will be hosting an online information event to provide an opportunity for interested education providers to find out more.

The event will comprise of two parts, the first will provide an overview of the future requirements of the Adult and 16-19 year old education in Plymouth. The second part will provide a run through of the tender process and what will be required at the different stages.

Unfortunately due to the ongoing COVID19 situation and so that numbers are not limited by room size we have decided to run this as a virtual event. Nonetheless this will be an opportunity to meet the commissioners live online and to ask questions.

Information on how to register and participate in future competitive tendering opportunities will be posted as a separate opportunity on the Supplying the South West Portal ( at a later date.

If you are interested in attending this event please send your expression of interest with your email contact details to which we can send the link to access the event via the messaging facility under this opportunity on the Supplying the South West Portal by midday 11th January 2022.
