Tender: Department for Education


The Department for Education (DfE) is seeking to procure support to aid the recruitment, transition, training and retention of career changers and post-doctoral researchers into teaching.

These candidates require additional support to make the transition into the classroom but have potential to add value in schools drawing on their previous experience.

DfE are seeking suppliers to recruit candidates, support their transition into teaching and maximise the added value they offer to schools. Suppliers should have strategies to retain career changers and post-doctoral researchers once they complete training.

Contracts will be awarded to a number of different suppliers to develop and deliver recruitment and retention programmes targeted at different segments of the career changer market in separate regions across England.

DfE will re-procure the Maths and Physics Chairs programme which the Department has supported since 2014 and appoint a sole supplier to deliver a national programme across England.

The time limit for receipt of tenders or requests to participate is 12:00 on 12th September 2018.
