The University requires the appointed Supplier to be registered on the Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers as either a Main or Supporting Provider and shall deliver the services in accordance with the ESFA Funding Rules for Training Providers.

At Nottingham Trent University, we contract with employers for apprenticeship delivery at a national level, with apprentices located at work sites across England. The breadth of our apprenticeship offer means that we deliver training to apprentices from a diverse range of backgrounds. This includes, young apprentices on Level 3 apprenticeships that are new to the world of work who may be continuing directly from previous study at Key Stage 4. Additionally, we also work with apprentices on the Level 7 Senior Leader apprenticeship who are senior executives that may have been out of formal education for some time. This diverse population of learners requires an innovative approach to delivery that is sensitive to the needs and expectations of a wide range of learners. Consequently, we are seeking a delivery partner with the ability to design and deliver a high-quality and engaging delivery model that provides a predominantly online/blended solution. Providers should also be able to offer a full delivery solution, from initial assessment to examination and certification.
