The Education and Training Foundation (ETF) cares about working in collaborative partnerships with our commissioned providers (Delivery Partners or Partners).
In order to set out clearly the expectations we have of both ourselves and Partners during any delivery work with the ETF, we have put together a Partnership Framework which is split into three parts:
This includes content about what partnership means, relationship dynamics and how we build our partnership base. Part A is useful for Partners at any time but is applicable to a pre-delivery stage.
This includes detail about how we will manage Partners and how we work as an organisation. Part B is to be used once Partners have entered a contractual relationship with the ETF.
This includes expectations and obligations of being a Partner with the ETF. Part C is to be used once Partners have entered a contractual relationship with the ETF.
This Partnership Framework will be reviewed periodically to incorporate any changes to organisational structure or processes. When a review has taken place, the updated version shall be uploaded here for the convenience of our partners.
The Partnership Framework sets out the expectations of Delivery Partners. It should be used alongside the contract. In resolving any issues, the contract will take precedent.
