Shropshire Council | Published January 7, 2017  -  Deadline February 6, 2017

Shropshire Council is looking to create a framework of providers to deliver apprenticeship training from April 2017. This is in response to the government's reform of apprenticeships and the introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy which will come into effect on 1.4.2017. The council is looking to maximise the use of the Levy pot available across all its service areas whilst also supporting our partners to make use of their own levy pots by accessing our framework of providers.

Shropshire Council is looking to create a framework of providers to deliver apprenticeship training from April 2017. This is in response to the government's reform of apprenticeships and the introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy which will come into effect on 1.4.2017. The council is looking to maximise the use of the Levy pot available across all its service areas whilst also supporting our partners to make use of their own levy pots by accessing our framework of providers.

The framework will be made up of providers who are able to deliver apprenticeships for one or a variety of the following lot categories:

1. Administration;

2. Adult Social Care;

3. Agriculture, Horticulture, Animal Care and Groundsmanship;

4. Arts, Events and Production;

5. Cleaning, Estates and Facilities;

6. Coaching, Leadership, Management and Projects;

7. Compliance and Legal;

8. Construction, Planning and the Built Environment;

9. Customer Services;

10. Driving and Vehicle Maintenance;

11. Finance;

12. Food and Drink (hospitality);

13. Health and equality;

14. Health and Safety;

15. Housing;

16. HR;

17. IT, Media, Communications and Marketing;

18. Leisure;

19. Manufacturing and Warehousing;

20. Public and Emergency Services;

21. Retail and Enterprise;

22. Security;

23. Teaching and Learning;

24. Youth, Children and early years.

Each of the above categories will have multiple sub categories as set out in the Tender documentation. Providers should be able to provide at least several of these sub categories in relation to the lot or lots which they are applying for.

It is a mandatory requirement for applicants that they are successful in being included onto the Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers (RoATP).

There will be a maximum of 5 providers in each category. The top 5 scoring providers for each category will be successful. If there are not 5 providers who tender for a category the framework positions will be awarded to those who have bid if they meet all pass/fail requirements.

Organisations who are successful in being accepted onto the framework will then be invited to bid for apprenticeship training when the need is identified and a further stage of competition between providers in the appropriate categories will take place and a separate call off contract will be entered into. This will be governed by the terms and conditions included in the tender documentation. If there is only one provider in a category there will still be a requirement for that organisation to bid for call off contracts. Further competition bids should be in line with the tenders submitted in applying for this framework, particularly regarding value for money. Further competition Bids will be considered based upon price as well as value for money, availability, delivery methods, location of delivery, flexibility and convenience and the support of learners' specific needs or requirements.

This framework will be available for use by any other local authority, public sector body, education provider (i.e. schools, academies, multi academy trusts, FE and HE) in England.

Shropshire Council also intend to set up an Apprenticeship Matching Service to its partners and other public sector/education organisations. This will enable the council to provide advice and guidance on matching providers on our framework with apprenticeship needs and the council will charge an administrative fee for doing so.

Shropshire Council reserves the right to remove any provider from the framework if the provider fails to provide value for money or quality delivery, or is removed from the Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers (RoATP).

We are looking to contract with providers on the framework for an initial period of one year with the option for extension of further 12 month periods up to a total maximum period of 4 years commencing on 1.4.2017.

Please see description at Description Lot No 1 II.2.4

We are unable to estimate the value of individual lots.
