Tender for the Adult Learning Services Framework

From Hackney Learning Trust

We are shortly about to re-tender the Adult Learning Services Framework and I am writing to let you know that this opportunity will be advertised in mid-January.
Hackney has also made enhancements to how we tender and award contracts by introducing an electronic tendering system called ProContract. All future tenders, including this one, will be advertised using ProContract and all tender opportunities will be found on the following page: https://www.londontenders.org/
To tender, you will need to register on the ProContract portal: https://procontract.due-north.com/Register
ProContract is used by 18 other London boroughs. Further information and key benefits are highlighted below.
Key Benefits
Reduced Administration
The first time your register on the portal all your key data is stored and pre-populated for any future tender responses you complete for Hackney or, indeed, any client on the same portal. This means you have more time to deliver your service to clients like Hackney.
Automatic Notifications
After registering on the portal, you will be automatically notified of suitable opportunities at Hackney or, indeed, any client on the same portal. You can login to your account at any time and update your preferences (products/service specialisms, geographical coverage, etc.). This means you can spend less time looking for new opportunities and let them come to you.
Reduced Paperwork
An electronic system means there is less manual data entry, less printing and less posting of documentation. This not only saves money but also makes the process more time efficient.
Increased Transparency
You can track progress of the tender in real time using the system. You will also be prompted by the system where further information or mandatory information is required allowing you to make amendments in real time. Furthermore, the built-in messaging functioning allows you to communicate securely with us should you need to clarify anything.
Is It Free to Register?
Yes. It is completely free to register and submit electronic tender responses.
Help & Support
There is comprehensive documentation available on the portal which takes you right through from registering through to responding to tenders. Video tutorials are also included. Please visit: https://supplierhelp.due-north.com/ for more information.
There is also a dedicated Help Desk where you can log issues directly with the manufacturer of the electronic tendering system. Please visit: http://proactis.kayako.com/procontractv3/Core/Default/Index for more information.
Last, but by no means least, the Hackney Procurement Service is also available to assist you with any issues you may be experiencing. They are offering supplier open day on 8th January to give you more information, answer any questions you may have and help you register. The supplier day will be held at the Hackney Service Centre, 1 Hillman Street, E8 1DY – if you wish to attend please just go to the visitors reception and say that you are here for the supplier training day and they will take you to the training room. The supplier open day will be run as a drop in session between 9:30am and 16:00pm.
If you have any queries in the meantime, please don’t hesitate to contact andy.mills@learningtrust.co.uk.


Peer mentors for the Mental Health Voice project
The Advocacy project is now starting to recruit peer mentors for the Mental Health Voice project. Peer mentors will draw on their own lived experience of mental illness to offer one to one support to someone else experiencing mental illness. The  role description and application form can be found here http://www.advocacyproject.org.uk/mental-health-peer-mentor/.
 
It would be really helpful if you could circulate details of the role to anyone that may be interested in training as a peer mentor, or it may also be of interest to yourselves. Once the mentors have been trained, the Mental Health Voice project will be looking for people that would benefit from being supported by a mentor.
