Subcontracting Policy and approach [P170 V1 20/21]
The TEC Partnership subcontracts only when it supports the needs of the region it operates in or if agreed with an employer to enhance a bespoke programme to fulfill a requirement that cannot be met internally.
In line with ESFA subcontracting funding policy. Subcontracting may be considered across 16-18, 19+ AEB and Apprenticeships. The TEC Partnership will only consider a subcontract if positive due diligence, including quality and finance checks meet group expectations. All subcontracting is approved via the Executive Management Team and communicated to governors at corporation.
