I can’t see a particular course/training, can you run it?

If you are interested in receiving training that is not already offered by TUCO Academy, pop us an email or give us a call and we will see if we can source it for you. By going through TUCO Academy you will be able to purchase the training at a subsidised rate and if you can offer the training to other members it will reduce the cost further.

Can I request a course or development day be held at my organisation?

The TUCO Academy has worked hard to offer all training at a subsidised price, agreeing reduced corporate contract rates with hotels etc. - yet still understands the benefits of in-house training. To that end, working alongside the professional trainers, TUCO Academy can arrange for events to be held at your own institution, for no extra cost.

Who can use the training with TUCO Academy?

All professional development events are available for ANY staff in institutions who are members of TUCO, not just employees in the hospitality, catering and commercial services department.

When can I join a framework as a supplier?

TUCO publish adverts, specs and supporting documents to the InTend portal when a framework is due for renewal. Please ensure you have an account and check regularly for updates: https://in-tendhost.co.uk/tuco/aspx/Home. The end dates of all TUCO frameworks are visible on each framework page.

Are all your suppliers vetted and accredited?

Yes. Dependent on the product category, we will have assessed the supplier’s credentials to be able to supply the goods and/or services.  Please see the SQ (selection questionnaire) questions relative to the product category you are interested in.  High risk food suppliers e.g. sandwich suppliers are also continually audited to ensure they meet food safety requirements.

 You can find details of a framework’s start date by going to Procurement > Framework Agreements, then clicking into the relevant framework or DPS.
