UNIT-e attains high score in Scottish Further Education procurement framework

We are delighted to have scored highly as a supplier on the APUC Student Management Framework for FE Colleges. The APUC (Advanced Procurement for Universities and Colleges) framework is the procurement centre of expertise for all of Scotland’s universities and colleges and provides a wide range of related shared services to education institutions across the country. In a broad range of technical questions included within the tender response, UNIT-e attained the highest total score. 

Further Education in Scotland is a key market for UNIT-e, which currently serves 80% students in full time education across 12 out of the country’s 13 colleges. Being ranked as APUC’s highest quality supplier reinforces and recognises our commitment to innovation in an ever-changing sector and our mission to help colleges be more data driven and competitive thanks to a single source of truth across the entire student journey.  

Simon Jarvis, Managing Director of UNIT-e, said: “It’s fantastic to be acknowledged as a leading MIS supplier within the APUC framework. With UNIT-e’s long success in the FE sector, we understand that data sits at the core of college life and is a key part of an institution’s armour for improving student experiences and outcomes. In Scotland, we are proud to support over 103,000 enrolments a year and we look to the future to continue our partnerships with these institutions that deliver vital skills and training to the workforce now and in the future.” 

As part of the biggest EdTech group in the UK, ParentPay Group, and with over 25 years serving the Scottish market, UNIT-e is dedicated to supporting FE institutions across the country and 104 colleges in total across the UK and Ireland. With further market-specific, customer-led enhancements to benefit all stakeholders scheduled for 2023 and beyond, UNIT-e continues to work alongside its customers to empower their staff, students, parents and businesses and support the success of the institution today and for tomorrow.
