Due to the size of the market, YPO have developed a search portal to deliver the procurement of apprenticeship standards. The search functionality allows contracting authorities to search and procure apprenticeship, associated training and end point assessment organisations.
Contracting authorities will have the ability to:
• Search for an apprenticeship via regions
• Search for an apprenticeship via the route
• Search for a specific standard
• Filter providers through a range of sub-criteria
• Direct award through the portal
• Carry out a further competition through the portal
• Download all provider framework responses
• Download all provider framework pricing
• Download provider information sheets
All information that YPO received as part of the tender process can be viewed by contracting authorities. This information is commercially sensitive, so contracting authorities will be required to log into the portal.
