Third Party Delivery Supplier Fees Policy

Oldham College has been providing outstanding vocational training for learners and businesses for over 50 years. We deliver training to around 8,000 students every year in key subject areas which include construction & engineering, creative arts, hair & beauty, business services and environmental technologies. The main campus is on Rochdale Road with facilities located elsewhere within the Oldham town centre.

In order for the college to remain competitive and truly responsive to the needs of its stakeholders it must be able to offer a quality service without the usual constraints of staff recruitment and development whilst still engaging with the highest quality delivery agents in programme areas it may not be possible to increase its current capacity within a given curriculum area. There may be occasions where the college would seek to invoke this policy in order to develop new curriculum areas that may be required in order to meet demand identified through local / national strategic or economic development.
