Interserve Group Limited awarded £1,000,000 contract to provide Adult Education services in Liverpool

Interserve Group Limited, the international support services, construction and equipment services group, has won a one-year contract worth almost £1,000,000 to deliver adult education in Liverpool City Region.

Interserve Learning & Employment (Services) Limited (ILE) is one of a group of providers who successfully bid to the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority to deliver adult education provision. The contract, which starts on August 1st, 2019, will engage adults and provide them with skills and learning to equip them for work, an apprenticeship or further learning.  

The services Interserve will offer include supporting people to develop English, maths and digital skills as well as Level 2 and 3 qualifications aligned to labour market needs. Other aspects of the contract include pre-employment training; vocationally specific learning; education and vocational skills support for employed people; and skills support for unemployed and economically inactive people.

ILE designed the delivery model based on its 34 years’ experience of training and supporting adults combined with the company’s understanding of what learners and employers require.

In the last academic year ILE supported more than 3,000 learners aged 19 years and over through adult education. For this cohort, ILE delivered an overall achievement rate of almost 90 per cent.

The programme has been funded by the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority’s Adult Education Budget. ILE will work collaboratively with the other successful bidders and local providers to align services to local priorities, so that the organisations contribute to the long-term economic ambitions of the Combined Authority.

Gregg Scott, ILE’s Managing Director, said: “I am delighted we have won the Adult Education Board contract with the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority. ILE has been chosen to deliver the contract because of our proven national expertise in supporting learners to progress.

“Each year we support more than 10,000 individuals across the UK through adult education, apprenticeships and other training provision that meet local needs and develop the workforce of the future.

“The contract win illustrates our ability to meet our strategic aim of growing our business with key clients by delivering quality apprenticeships that make a real difference to people’s lives and the community in which they live.”
