Andy Berry, Director & Chair of the Board


Dear Applicant

Thank you for expressing an interest in the post of Executive Director for The Colleges’ Partnership.

The Colleges’ Partnership is a successful joint venture company specialising in the provision of apprenticeship solutions, vocational training and professional learning and development opportunities delivered directly into the workplace.  Its primary focus has been on the delivery of contracts into the military, delivering over 4,000 apprenticeships in 2017/18.   The company has also begun to deliver its highly successful training solutions beyond this into commercial and public sector clients throughout the UK.  Key military contracts include Royal Signals, Combat Infantry and Army Air Corps.

TCP is at an exciting point in its development with a number of new opportunities provided by the changes from framework to standards in the form of provision of end point assessment services both to the military and outside.   The company is also exploring growth opportunities for apprenticeship delivery beyond the military, while retaining its core contracts.  The new Executive Director will need to lead on this critical business development activity, while also maintaining relationships within the military and the existing high quality offer.

The company benefits from significant support from Wiltshire College and Bridgwater & Taunton College and as such is able to deliver a lean, efficient and high quality programme across a range of subject sector areas.  The partner colleges have a combined turnover of over £90m and significant resources and expertise that the Executive Director and the wider TCP company can draw on.  

As Executive Director you would be responsible to the Board of Directors for leading the day to day operations, developing key strategic partnerships and informing and shaping the overall direction and strategy of The Colleges’ Partnership, in liaison with the Board.  The post holder will have corporate responsibility for strategic planning, development and management of a robust financial plan, corporate policy making and the delivery of Board objectives, as well as the quality and timely delivery of customer services and operations within budget.

Regular and effective communication with the Board, as well as day to day responsibility for the smooth running and management of all areas of the company are key to the success of this role, as will be the development of the next phase in the company’s strategic direction.

I look forward to receiving your application.

Andy Berry
Director & Chair of the Board
