A new training provider for the Tunnelling and Underground Construction Academy (TUCA) in Ilford is being sourced by Transport for London (TfL). The contract is for four years with an optional one-year extension.
TUCA was built by Crossrail Limited in 2011, with the Skills Funding Agency contributing. It will continue to be used by Crossrail and also other projects if needed.
TfL wants the successful provider to develop transport, engineering and railway training programmes using the facility. This will be achieved through delivering training programmes including apprenticeships to serve the wider transport and infrastructure sector.
TfL expects the successful bidder to be appointed by October and start work by January 7 2017.
