Our
Partnerships

We work in dynamic partnership with some of the leading national organisations in education, training, employability and skills as well as a host of schools, colleges, universities and employers to make a real difference to lives and experiences.

DYNAMIC AND STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIPS

We proactively work with a range of strategic partners. Our partners include:

  • The Local Enterprise Partnership
  • Employment and Skills Partnership
  • Jobcentre Plus
  • Association of Employers and Learning Providers (AELP)
  • West Yorkshire Learning Providers (WYLP)

Aspire-igen acts on some programmes as a prime contractor, and as such is required to meet the cost of programme management, quality assurance, data recording and financial audit.  When acting as a prime contractor, we will seek to minimise any management fees we take.

KEEPING IT ‘LOCAL’

This keeps us on top of current local and national strategies and means that we can advise on the latest issues.

TOGETHER, WE REALLY DO MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

Aspire-igen is focused on strengthening ties between all organisations that seek to add value to the local community. In all that we do, we aim to improve the lives of the individuals that live in our region. Together we are strong and really can (and do) make a difference.

OUR SUB-CONTRACTING POLICY FOR THE ASPIRE2WORK PROGRAMME

Aspire-igen recognises that working with different organisations and partners can bring additional benefits to each organisation and particularly the communities we seek to serve. At the same time it is imperative that services supplied are effective, high quality and good value for money. As such, our strategy and policy seeks to create a low risk and effective use of public funds to ensure that subcontracted delivery is of high quality and meets one or more of the following rationale:

  1. Enhance the opportunities available to young people
  2. Fill gaps in niche or expect provision, or provide better access to training facilities
  3. Support better geographical access for learners
  4. Offer an entry point for disadvantaged groups
  5. Consideration of the impact on individuals who share protected characteristics.

In addition, our due diligence will ensure organisations we work with meet all of the necessary requirements and standards to deliver high quality education, are in good financial standing and work with organisational integrity. We aim to act fairly and with respect in all our dealings.
