Non-Traditional Revenues Project bid

Colleges are facing an increasingly challenging funding and financial environment brought about from a variety of factors including no increases in the rates chargeable for standard courses, caps on apprenticeship funding allocations, changes to AEB funding, increases in staff and pension costs and the costs of post-merger integration.

In light of this, Collab Group Colleges have been exploring the scope for accelerating access to non-traditional forms of revenues such as:

  • Bidding for large scale “payments by results” projects where the active engagement of civic organisations is encouraged.
  • Remodelling the adult education training market.
  • Mutualising and franchising services.
  • Creating new commercial businesses based around training.
  • International business.

We now wish appoint a team of consultants to undertake a detailed study to identify and set out a series of investment options which will allow the Collab Group membership (as civic and training organisations) to use Collab Group to deliver new non-traditional revenue streams.
