New ESF Opportunities

We understand the next ESF Opt-In commissioning round is due to commence in a few weeks for the award of new contracts covering NEET, Skills Support for the Workforce and Skills Support for the Unemployed.  These new contracts are expected to run from April 2019 for a minimum of 2 years.

For the new contract period, The Lancashire Colleges (TLC) will be bidding for the Lancashire lots using a Lead Accountable Body model through Preston’s College.

In order to offer strong breadth and coverage across Lancashire, we want to continue with a wider partnership arrangement like that currently in place under the LESEP banner which includes Private Training Providers and Third Sector organisations working together with TLC and the Lead Accountable Body.

If you are happy for TLC to contact you and would be interested in joining this network for these new opportunities please complete and return the attached ESF Expression of Interest template to:
