How does it work?


Step 1

Express your interest in the tender through our online form. If your application is successful, one of our representatives will help you register as a provider on our system and get you set up to complete your CRM training.

Step 2

Once you're set up and ready to go, you will have a 2 week timeframe in which to complete the registration of your clients onto our system and get them set up to embark on their #SkillsRevolution! For each client you will be required to complete one Skills Productivity Plan (SPP) for the business, and a minimum of 3 Individual Skills Development Plans (ISDPs) at employee level.

Step 3

Your client registrations will be checked and approved by our colleagues from the Greater Manchester Combined Authority. At this point, your client will be assigned a Skills Coach from our team and we'll take it from here. You will be paid for your work and your client will be in safe hands with us.


And that's it! The #SkillsRevolution has begun.
