How to become a school transport provider
To be eligible to quote for home to school transport contracts, run by the Transport Co-Ordination Centre (TCC), all operators must first be registered on SProcNet, our new dynamic purchasing system run by our partners adam. After registering, operators will be required to complete and pass the Accreditation and Enrolment section.
The SProcNet system is open for new registrations, Accreditations and Enrolments. Please note that if an Enrolment application is failed 3 times, an operator is suspended from attempting again for 6 months.
If you have any questions regarding any part of the registering or Accreditation/Enrolment process, please contact adam directly on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Drivers and passenger assistants
All driver and passenger assistants involved in the transportation of children and vulnerable adults, on contracts issued through the TCC need to be vetted through the TCC Authorised Identity Badge (AIB) scheme. Only drivers and passenger assistants working for approved TCC operators will be accepted to apply for a TCC AIB.
All new applicants will need to complete the online booking form to arrange an appointment at County Hall for a visual DBS document check. Please ensure all applicants are aware of the approved documents list as issued by the Disclosure and Barring Service. Only documents on the list will be accepted as forms of identification.
Upon issue of the DBS Enhanced Disclosure the individual can register for the DBS Update Service. From there onwards the individual can apply to renew their TCC Authorised Identity Badge online.
Please note: If any part of the process is failed, or information not provided, the application will not be successful. If you have any doubt about the suitability of an applicant to work with children and vulnerable adults, please refer to the TCC Suitability Guidelines (PDF) for information on how applications are assessed.
