Charges & Implementation of the Policy
Alliance Learning will charge a fee of anything between 15-25% of the overall funding drawn down from the Skills Funding Agency. This fee will vary depending on the amount of support that Alliance Learning provides to the said sub-contractor and the risk analysis levied to this sub-contractor following the results of the Due Diligence
In return for this fee we will support the sub-contractor through regular meetings with the sub-contractors representatives to monitor performance against the contract, audit compliance and support & development of their staff in line with the training of Alliance Learning’s own staff. Teaching, Learning and Assessment is a key strategic driver in ensuring that learners receive outstanding delivery and support. Training of staff and continued professional development is expected of all sub-contractors in conjunction with Alliance Learning staff
Payment to the sub-contractor will be 8 weeks after the learner(s) are enrolled onto programme. A detailed spreadsheet will be sent to the sub-contractor clearly stating the income that Alliance Learning receive, the management fee retained for each learner and the total amount payable to the sub contractor. The sub contractor will then have to invoice Alliance Learning and the invoice will be paid within 30 days. Once the learner has completed their programme any remaining payment will be rolled up and paid to the sub contractor once all certificates have been received.
Alliance Learning reserve the right suspend payment should any elements of the contract not be fully adhered to and this suspension will be in place until these elements have been complied with.
This policy will be communicated and discussed with all new and existing sub-contractors prior to the signing of any Service Level Agreement (contract) for the specific contract year which runs from 1st August – 31st July and reviewed annually.
