Transport for London (TfL) is seeking a new training provider for its Ilford-based Tunnelling and Underground Construction Academy.
The academy was originally built to meet demand for skilled workers on the Crossrail project, and will continue this role under the new provider. It may also be used for future projects.
Bidders will be expected to deliver training programmes, apprenticeships and generate additional revenue from training and events.
“The £13M Tunnelling and Underground Construction Academy has played a leading role in supporting the skills requirements of the Crossrail project,” said deputy director for Crossrail operations Danny Fox.
“This is an exciting opportunity for training providers as it’s one of the first times that such a facility has been made available to the wider underground and transport industries.”
The deadline for bids is 27 June 2016. TfL expects the process to be complete in October and the new programme to commence on 7 January 2017.
