Application and tender

Application and tender

We publish the notices for Modern Apprenticeships contracts on Public Contracts Scotland. They’re available for learning provider and direct employer contracts.

Register for Public Contracts Scotland

This means you can set up notifications to let you know when invitations to bid on contracts go live, which usually happens between October and December each year. You’ll have access to all the necessary documents to apply to become a provider too.

Complete an Invitation to tender, proposal and volume bid

You’ll be asked to complete an ITT Response Document, Proposal and Volume Bid.  It asks you to provide details about previous experience in delivering training, describe what you wish to deliver, the areas you want to be considered for a contract and the number of starts you’re asking for. There’s information on the Public Contracts Scotland website to help you complete your bid.

Confirm your approvals

Make sure you confirm you have Awarding Body and Sector Skills Council Approval. You can find out what is your relevant body or council in the framework document for the Modern Apprenticeship you’re offering.
