The purpose of this Prior Information Notice (PIN) is to notify interested parties of the forthcoming National Professional Qualifications (NPQ) Provider Networking Events.

The Department for Education (DfE) has notified bidders of the outcome of the Framework Agreement for the delivery of the NPQs. To support the development of supply chains in order to deliver NPQs, the DfE is facilitating two online events on 7 and 19 of April 2021 respectively.

The objective of these events is to allow the newly appointed NPQ lead providers the opportunity to set out, to potential delivery partners, their programmes including how delivery partners could work with lead providers to deliver the reformed suite of NPQs.

Any organisation interested in the opportunity to work as a delivery partner (subcontractor) for one of the NPQ lead providers is encouraged to attend.
