CCS is working with the Association of College (AoC) and Crescent Purchasing Consortium (CPC) to develop a compliant agreement for the provision of awarding organisations to the further education sector.
The project has had some initial market engagement and now need your support to help us shape the future model. We are currently planning to initially hold two Customer Engagement Days;
Wednesday 13th April, Hilton Hotel Green Park, Half Moon St, London W1J 7BN
Wednesday 20th April, Leeds City College Keighley Campus, Bradford Rd, Keighley BD21 4HQ
The aim of the day is to discuss the work so far, the procurement development and key business requirements. The outline of the day will be for it to run from 10.30am to 3.00pm. The project team will provide an update on the project and then facilitate workshop groups to discuss key requirements for the procurement and subsequent model and we are keen for as many colleges to be involved with this exciting tender through the Engagement Events.
The event would benefit from input spanning a range of participants including, but not limited to, Principals, Finance Directors and Exam Officers. To ensure we get a plethora of experience and insight we would like to invite two delegates from each college.
Lunch will not be provided, however there will be suitable places in the local area to buy from and sufficient time in the day for you to have something to eat.
Please can you RSVP with ideally two delegates names and job titles and stating your preference for the London or Leeds event to [email protected] by Friday 1st April. If you are unable to attend either event please let us know, as depending on demand we may look to put on additional sessions which may be in alternative locations.
