About the Nottingham Skills Hub

Nottingham Skills Hub is a joint project created through the collaboration of New College Nottingham and Central College Nottingham, currently the 2 colleges are undertaking a merger and from December 2016 will become Nottingham College.

To date a significant amount of thinking required to produce a holistic vision and delivery strategy for Nottingham Further education (FE) has been completed over previous years and a critical component of this being the development of the proposed Skills Hub. It has been the long standing aim of both Colleges to reduce the number of operational sites and consolidate in the centre of Nottingham. Learner travel patterns indicate that the city centre is the most favourable location both in terms of ease of transport and a desire from young people and adults to study in the heart of Nottingham. The Nottingham Skills Hub development achieves this.

The proposed curriculum vision has been based on a single college corporation occupying a city centre Skills Hub offering significant educational and skills benefits, improved efficiency and effectiveness, creating a sustainable estate that evidences commitment to Nottingham's major employment and growth markets. This maximises access to both specialist and community provision across the conurbation allowing a focus of all efforts on further improving teaching and learning and student outcomes in a consistent and manageable way for Nottingham and meeting the needs of the local economy.

A number of curriculum decisions and their locations have been assumed to date, but these will need to be further considered as part of the stage 2 business case development that needs to be submitted to the LEP with a view to determining the final most efficient estate. To date it has been assumed that the single college will have five core sites, the Skills Hub being a critical site in this vision.

The Colleges have been working together in order to determine curriculum, timetabling and delivery plans, however this is yet to be finalised and the completion of this work is critical. The new campus will not only replace outdated teaching and learning facilities at both colleges but will enable the FE partners to respond directly to the needs of local employers by supplying the skills required for Nottingham's key employment and growth sectors. The Hub will provide an environment to promote and develop entrepreneurial behaviours, career aspirations and transparent progression pathways into employment within fit for purpose facilities that are of industry standard.

The Skills Hub is fully supported by the D2N2 Learning and Enterprise partnership (LEP) and Nottingham City Council (NCC). The project will be part funded by the LEP and NCC. The financing of the remainder of the development costs will be generated from college estate rationalisation and potentially through preferential borrowing. At all stages of the project the consultants are to be cognisant of the conditions of funding grant and the requirements for the design to meet all the colleges' curriculum qualification requirements.

See 'Attachments' for a word version of this description. DfE's ITT Accreditation and Performance team supports one of the DfE departmental priorities to 'develop a great workforce - with great leadership'. The Accreditation and Performance team at DfE aims to ensure the supply of high quality ITT provision, by: accrediting new ITT providers; monitoring and intervening where poor ITT provider performance is identified; implementing changes to the ITT provider market triggered by sector change and ministerial priorities; and mitigating risks to ITT provision through the evaluation and reporting of sector issues and trends. Therefore, DfE is looking to procure up to six Initial Teacher Training (ITT) Education & Children's Social Care Associates (ECSCAs) to provide resource and capacity in the field to ensure a responsive approach to monitoring and supporting the ITT sector. As part of a support package for recently accredited and established ITT providers, ECSCA's will work with DfE/NCTL to mitigate risks throughout the ITT provider lifecycle and encourage ITT providers to be self-improving by: • Visiting prospective, recently accredited and experienced ITT providers to quality assure ITT provision in line with the statutory ITT criteria, and DfE/NCTL policies and initiatives; • providing DfE/NCTL with intelligence regarding non-compliant providers or poor quality practice, and reporting on improvements required within ITT provision in order to address non-compliance and improve quality; • advising the sector on best practice in line with current government priorities (e.g. phonics, extremism and safeguarding). DfE would provide regular briefings to facilitate this work; • visiting ITT providers, to support the migration, closure or withdrawal of ITT accreditation, to ensure continuation of high quality ITT for trainees; • supporting and providing intelligence on pilot initiatives, including subject-specific national SCITTs; • supporting and monitoring ITT providers offering ITT routes that currently carry innovation status, to ensure continued high quality ITT provision or identify areas of non-compliance; • collating, reporting and providing data and information, to inform DfE policy and delivery teams, including flagging of risks and issues; • working with NCTL/DfE to improve communications with all providers and promoting development opportunities for ITT providers and their staff to build capacity; • working with NCTL/DfE to contribute field knowledge to the development and implementation of a new ITT Data Management system (DMS); • supporting DfE/NCTL in bespoke activities aimed at improving the quality of ITT provision. DfE/NCTL requires experienced ITT professionals, who have knowledge and experience of the current Ofsted inspection frameworks, in particular, the Ofsted Initial Teacher Education Framework. The key drivers for this requirement are: • DfE/NCTL's remit for the quality assurance of the performance of accredited ITT

Nottingham North and East, Nottingham West and Rushcliffe Clinical Commissioning Groups are inviting potential providers of Community Pain Service and Integrated Dietetics Outpatients Services to submit a tender in response to this contract notice.

The Community Pain Service is required to meet and deliver high quality care to patients in a variety of appropriate community settings. The service will provide a multi-disciplinary interface service between primary care, other community services and secondary care.

Pain management services may be located in the community, specialist care hospitals or in specialised pain management units, and need to work seamlessly as if in a single unit in order to provide an integrated management plan with the patient.

The aim of the Community Pain Service is to:

— Improve the quality of life for patients experiencing chronic pain;

— Support and empower patients and their nominated carers to take responsibility for managing their condition;

— Provide a biopsychosocial approach to the management of pain, in line with NICE guidance, which utilises evidence based interventions including education, physical and psychological therapies, and pharmacological through a single point of access;

— Support other providers of pain management care including GPs, community pharmacists and providers of mental health and other equivalent support services through education and advice;

— Optimising the proportion of patients able to manage pain without the need for surgical intervention, making sure all patients have completed their agreed management pathway before onward referral is considered;

— Ensuring patients are reviewed holistically on entering the service to ensure treatment plans remain valid and that they are evidence based;

— Improve the quality of life for patients experiencing chronic pain;

— Provide a biopsychosocial approach to the management of pain, in line with NICE guidance, which utilises evidence based interventions including education, physical and psychological therapies, and pharmacological through a single point of access.

The Administrative element of the service is already in place for Nottingham West CCG. The provider must work with the incumbent provider of this administrative function in Nottingham West to ensure the 2 component parts of the Community Service work seamlessly.

The already established administrative service in Nottingham West will:

— Receive referrals from GPs (whether direct from GP practice or via a Clinical Assessment Service);

— Provide administration of the triage process, including onward referral where necessary;

— Book patient appointments;

— Provide a reception for the face to face clinic;

— Provide post-clinic administration, including onward referral where necessary;

— Maintain an activity database, including analysis of patient satisfaction and patient outcome questionnaires.

Please note — Lot 2 is for the provision of Community Pain Services for Nottingham North and East and Rushcliffe CCGs, but is inclusive of CFS for Nottingham North and East, Nottingham West and Rushcliffe CCGs.

The service is required to meet and deliver high quality care to patients in a variety of appropriate community settings. The service will provide a multi-disciplinary interface service between primary care, other community services and secondary care.

Pain management services may be located in the community, specialist care hospitals or in specialised pain management units, and need to work seamlessly as if in a single unit in order to provide an integrated management plan with the patient.

The aim of the Community Pain Service is to:

— Improve the quality of life for patients experiencing chronic pain;

— Support and empower patients and their nominated carers to take responsibility for managing their condition;

— Provide a biopsychosocial approach to the management of pain, in line with NICE guidance, which utilises evidence based interventions including education, physical and psychological therapies, and pharmacological through a single point of access;

— Support other providers of pain management care including GPs, community pharmacists and providers of mental health and other equivalent support services through education and advice;

— Optimising the proportion of patients able to manage pain without the need for surgical intervention, making sure all patients have completed their agreed management pathway before onward referral is considered;

— Ensuring patients are reviewed holistically on entering the service to ensure treatment plans remain valid and that they are evidence based;

— Improve the quality of life for patients experiencing chronic pain or CFS;

— Provide a biopsychosocial approach to the management of pain or CFS, in line with NICE guidance, which utilises evidence based interventions including education, physical and psychological therapies, and pharmacological through a single point of access;

— Deliver a service aligned to the NICE guidelines for CFS (last review 2014), including the delivery of Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and/or graded exercise therapy (GET).

A provider will need to deliver a service that successfully administers a community pain management service for the registered population of Nottingham North and East CCG and Rushcliffe CCG.

The service will also be responsible for securing and funding the provision of premises for the pain management service to be delivered from, including all associated equipment and facilities such as clinic/treatment rooms.

As a nation, we are living longer and we are also accessing the NHS for longer. For many, they are also living for longer with long-term conditions. Many long term conditions are associated with poor nutritional status due to a combination of poor appetite, symptoms affecting nutritional intake, malabsorption, and increasing nutritional requirements.

Evidence shows that improving nutrition, with support from a dietitian, can help to prevent health problems, improve functional status, and increase quality of life and wellbeing for people living with long-term conditions, in addition to providing cost savings to the NHS.

Dietetic interventions in the management of the long term conditions within the scope of this service are:

— Oncology;

— Renal;

— Cystic Fibrosis;

— HIV;

— Gastroenterology;

— Diabetes;

— Malnutrition;

— Paediatrics Specific: In addition to the above which may be provided for adults and children, there are conditions that are specific to paediatrics, which will be managed by the service.

The core principles of the service will be:

— Multi-disciplinary working — Where appropriate patients will be seen at the same time as other health professionals involved in that patients care. The dietitian will assist, co-ordinate and where appropriate, lead on the planning, implementation and review of a patient's ongoing care/management.

— Links with Consultant and/or GP — the expectation is that the clinicians working within the service will have close links with the clinician who is medically responsible for the patients care.

— Cross organisational working — pathways will cross organisations and the service will be expected to develop positive working relationships with primary care, acute and community services.

— Shared decision making — Shared Decision Making (SDM) is a process in which patients, when they reach a decision crossroads in their health care, can review all the treatment options available to them and participate actively with their healthcare professional in making that decision.

— Self-Care — The service will deliver proactive, patient centred care, which is communicated between teams and organisations as appropriate and with patients so they understand the personalised care plan.

— Admin and data support — the provider must have a support function to provide administration and data support to ensure clinician time is utilised effectively and aids integrated working.

— Evidence based — The service will deliver care that is supported by robust clinical evidence.

— Specialist knowledge — The dietitians working within the service will have evidence of their competency to work within that speciality.

The Children and Families Act (2014) requires local authorities to provide children and young people with Special Educational Needs (SEN) or disabilities, and their parents and carers with information and advice about matters relating to their SEN or disabilities.

The SEN Code of Practice (2015) states that Information, Advice and Support (IASS) should be provided through a dedicated and easily identifiable service and should be impartial, confidential, accessible, and should have the capacity to handle face-to-face, telephone and electronic enquiries.

Following advice, from the Department for Education and the national Information Advice and Support (IAS) Network, for the need to establish a service fully independent of the Local Authority, consideration is being given to the optimum way to provide this service.

One option that is being considered is to include the Disagreement Resolution and Mediation services within the IASS service.

The new campus will not only replace outdated teaching and learning facilities at both colleges but will enable the FE partners to respond directly to the needs of local employers by supplying the skills required for Nottingham's key employment and growth sectors. The Hub will provide an environment to promote and develop entrepreneurial behaviours, career aspirations and transparent progression pathways into employment within fit for purpose facilities that are of industry standard. The Skills Hub is fully supported by the D2N2 Learning and Enterprise partnership (LEP) and Nottingham City Council (NCC). The project will be part funded by the LEP and NCC. The financing of the remainder of the development costs will be generated from college estate rationalisation and potentially through preferential borrowing. At all stages of the project the consultants are to be cognisant of the conditions of funding grant and the requirements for the design to meet all the colleges' curriculum qualification requirements.

About the Nottingham Skills Hub

Nottingham Skills Hub is a joint project created through the collaboration of New College Nottingham and Central College Nottingham, currently the two colleges are undertaking a merger and from December 2016 will become Nottingham College.

To date a significant amount of thinking required to produce a holistic vision and delivery strategy for Nottingham Further education (FE) has been completed over previous years and a critical component of this being the development of the proposed Skills Hub. It has been the long standing aim of both Colleges to reduce the number of operational sites and consolidate in the centre of Nottingham. Learner travel patterns indicate that the city centre is the most favourable location both in terms of ease of transport and a desire from young people and adults to study in the heart of Nottingham. The Nottingham Skills Hub development achieves this.

The proposed curriculum vision has been based on a single college corporation occupying a city centre Skills Hub offering significant educational and skills benefits, improved efficiency and effectiveness, creating a sustainable estate that evidences commitment to Nottingham's major employment and growth markets. This maximises access to both specialist and community provision across the conurbation allowing a focus of all efforts on further improving teaching and learning and student outcomes in a consistent and manageable way for Nottingham and meeting the needs of the local economy.

A number of curriculum decisions and their locations have been assumed to date, but these will need to be further considered as part of the stage 2 business case development that needs to be submitted to the LEP with a view to determining the final most efficient estate. To date it has been assumed that the single college will have five core sites, the Skills Hub being a critical site in this vision.

The Colleges have been working together in order to determine curriculum, timetabling and delivery plans, however this is yet to be finalised and the completion of this work is critical. The new campus will not only replace outdated teaching and learning facilities at both colleges but will enable the FE partners to respond directly to the needs of local employers by supplying the skills required for Nottingham's key employment and growth sectors. The Hub will provide an environment to promote and develop entrepreneurial behaviours, career aspirations and transparent progression pathways into employment within fit for purpose facilities that are of industry standard.

The Skills Hub is fully supported by the D2N2 Learning and Enterprise partnership (LEP) and Nottingham City Council (NCC). The project will be part funded by the LEP and NCC. The financing of the remainder of the development costs will be generated from college estate rationalisation and potentially through preferential borrowing.
