Revealed: The 5 winners of the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough AEB tender

Exclusive

The five training providers that have won contracts with Cambridgeshire and Peterborough to deliver its devolved adult education budget have been revealed.

The combined authority will take control of an annual £12 million budget to deliver to deliver adult education from September.

Just over £2 million of it was put out to tender in January. The rest of the funding will be handed to colleges and other institutions that currently receive AEB via a grant from the government.

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough combined authority has released the list of providers who’ve won a slice of the funding that went out to tender to FE Week,  but their contract values have not yet been revealed.

Sharing a cut of the £2.05 million are four providers rated ‘good’ by Ofsted, and one that has only ever received an early monitoring visit of its apprenticeship provision, in which it was found making ‘reasonable progress’.

The West Midlands was the first combined authority to release the winners from its AEB tender last week, as revealed by FE Week. They were closely followed by Liverpool City Region and then the Greater London Authority.

Tees Valley Combined Authority is understood to currently be in the final stages of funding awards and is expected to make a decision in the coming months, and the West of England Combined Authority is making decisions on allocations at its next committee meeting on June 14.

The procurement exercise being run Greater Manchester Combined Authority is still live.
