We welcome partnership approaches to project delivery. Applications can be strengthened by demonstrating a collaborative approach, especially where employers and digital learning specialists are working together. Collaborative working can help to ensure that your main project idea is addressing a recognised learning need; and can provide a route for early stage testing with learners. We are flexible about how collaborative projects are structured but expect to see this clearly reflected in the project management arrangements and for all partners to be active project participants. We have no view on who should be the lead partner in projects - we expect partners to reach their own decision on which of them is best suited to lead the project.
