Our Partnership Framework
We are committed to establishing a partnership framework of providers from private, public and third sector organisations. We invite expressions of interest from organisations to deliver Support for Ex-Offenders programme for the unemployed in Leicester and Leicestershire. We will prioritise providers who can meet the following criteria:
- Delivery in the East Midlands
- Minimum Ofsted Grade 2
- Success rates above the national average
- Strong links with Employers and an established employer network
Before contracting we complete a full due diligence check which includes a financial health check, site visit and collection of evidence regarding the organisation, delivery models and staff. We work with partners very closely throughout the contract. We expect partners to attend all meetings at DBC Training and host site visits where we can observe teaching and learning, undertake audit and meet learners and employers.
Kelly had a period of unemployment of 4 years, she came to DBC to gain confidence and qualifications to help her get back into employment.
Partnering with DBC has enabled us to fund provision in an area that supports the local community and increase jobs.
