SFA: register of training organisations

This series brings together documents relating to registering with the SFA, so you can tender for funding to provide education and training.

The January 2017 publication of the Register of Training Organisations is now available.

What is the register?

The register of training organisations is the SFA’s only market entry point for organisations that intend to:

  • deliver education and training services
  • deliver information, advice and guidance, which may include delivery for the National Careers Service
  • develop services (replacing the service developer framework)
  • operate in our supply chain as a subcontractor with an aggregated contract value of £100,000 or more (only for subcontractors delivering education and training services)

Organisations must complete our market entry pre-qualification process in order to enter the register, which is open at select points during the year.

Market entry pre-qualification process guidance

The pre-qualification process includes due diligence questions and capacity and capability questions which are available to complete at the same time.

You must complete the due diligence questions if you want to enter the Register. If you want to be invited to tender when opportunities become available, you must complete the capacity and capability questions.

Lead providers for the delivery of education and training must complete the capacity and capability questions if they want to apply for growth in the future.
