How does subcontracting work?

Our Partnerships Team lead the way in developing and nurturing partner relationships; whether that is scoping the requirements of a new partner, encouraging monthly review meetings against targets with existing partners or discussing desired additions to our portfolio. We all work together to achieve excellent outcomes for all of our learners. One of the major advantages of subcontracting and a major benefit of working with The Skills Network is the vast amount of expertise and experience within the management team.
