Fees and Charging Policy

Sub-Contractor Fees & Charging Statement

Workpays recognises the benefits that effective subcontracting can bring in extending the range of accessibility of provision offered to learners and responding to the requirements of the local labour market.

Rationale for subcontracting

  • Workpays Limited uses subcontractors to widen participation amongst learner groups that it would otherwise be "hard to reach" including unemployed, inactive, not in training or education; clients and other individuals that face barriers to participation in learning and work.
  • Workpays also uses subcontractors to fill gaps in, and to extend the breadth of its provision: for example, through widening the range opportunities available, broadening the range of sector subject areas or business sectors that can be covered. This in turn broadens the skills base of the Provider.
  • Workpays has contracts with the Education and Skills Funding Agency to deliver Apprenticeships, Adult Education Budget and ESF funded provision.  It fulfils this contract via Sub-Contracting arrangements with Learning Providers who are responsible for the delivery of the necessary teaching and learning to achieve the relevant qualifications. Workpays has a contractual obligation to publish its Supply Chain Fees and Charges Policy.
  • Workpays makes a service charge of 20% on the value of the Learning delivered by the Sub-Contractor. This service charge applies equally to all aspects of the Learning programme and each Sub-Contractor.
  • Workpays makes payments to all Sub-Contractors in an identical fashion, irrespective of the Learning Programme(s) being delivered. The payment is calculated by taking into consideration the on- programme and completion payments due and all new activity during any given month. Workpays processes all Learner paperwork received by the 20th (twentieth) day of each month. After reconciliation, each Sub-Contractor is asked to submit an invoice to Workpays at the end of the following month.
  • On receipt of the invoice from the Sub-Contractor, payment will be made in accordance with the payment schedule illustrated in the sub-contracting agreement subject to Workpays receiving monies due from the Education and Skills Funding Agency.

Review of Policy

This Supply Chain Fees and Charges Policy is reviewed annually by Workpays and communicated to all current Sub-Contractors at a meeting of Sub-Contractors held prior to the beginning of each contract year. It is explained to all new potential Sub-Contractors at the beginning of negotiations to become a Sub-Contractor to Workpays.
