38636110, 38636100

Work Package 2B (WP2B) comprises the supply of a laser cutting system to support the Dragon Reactor Decommissioning Project. WP2B is 1 of several work packages and Employer activities that collectively cover the overall work scope of the Dragon Reactor Decommissioning Project. The Dragon Reactor Decommissioning Project has been set up to remove the reactor and pack the resulting waste generated into packages for disposal. A scheme design has been produced by the Employer and the next stage is to develop the scheme design as separate DD&B work packages to provide the required infrastructure, plant and equipment to decommission the reactor. The scheme design developed by the Employer has identified how a remotely operated Reactor Core Segmentation Machine (RCSM) deploying laser cutting technology will be used to cut the Dragon reactor into manageable sections for removal and further processing.

Throughout February, interested parties are sought for Industry involvement in the joint MOD and Industry development, and implementation of a Maritime Mission Systems (MMS) Industry Engagement Strategy. The overall goal and intent of the strategy is to enable the creation of a sustainable enterprise that delivers world class performance of maritime mission systems capability for the Royal Navy, whilst developing a strong brand with which to attract innovation and talent, and improve UK exports. The development of such a strategy and a strong and unifying MMS brand, leveraging the MOD Maritime Combat Systems (MCS) Convergence programme and the Defence Growth Partnership (DGP) Centre of Maritime Intelligent Systems (CMIS), can lead to greater efficiency, value and market opportunities for all. The strategy looks to an open, inclusive and collaborative enterprise working to deliver and sustain a modular, open and scalable MMS architecture that provides the requisite levels of operational advantage, and freedom of action for the Royal Navy, whilst also enabling the exploration of concept and capability opportunities for the export market. Success in this drive and collective initiative is only achievable with a collaborative approach, where all members of the Enterprise have the opportunity to work together within a framework inspired by the principles of BS 11,000. This strategic and branding work provides an unparalleled opportunity for Industrial Partners to assist in shaping the future of MMS acquisition and support, and potentially leads to a period of market testing and export opportunities development, that will include a planned Maritime Mission Systems Engagement Centre at DSEI 15, led by the DE&S, Maritime Combat Systems (MCS) team, supported by the Royal Navy and Industry. Over the next four weeks more detailed information and guidance will be provided to parties interested in participating. Initial enquiries can be directed to the following address for referral to the appropriate contact: desshipsmcs-bmt-contractor1@mod.uk

UK SBS RE140253HEFCE Employer demand for intermediate technical education

About UK Shared Business Services Putting the business into shared services UK Shared Business Services Ltd (UK SBS) brings a commercial attitude to the public sector; helping our customers improve efficiency, generate savings and modernise. It is our vision to become the leading provider for our customers of shared business services in the UK public sector, continuously reducing cost and improving quality of business services for Government and the public sector. Our broad range of expert services is shared by our customers. This allows our customers the freedom to focus resources on core activities; innovating and transforming their own organisations. Core services include Procurement, Finance, Grants Admissions, Human Resources, Payroll, ISS, and Property Asset Management all underpinned by our Service Delivery and Contact Centre teams. UK SBS is a people rather than task focused business. It’s what makes us different to the traditional transactional shared services centre. What is more, being a not-for-profit organisation owned by its customers, UK SBS’ goals are aligned with the public sector and delivering best value for the UK taxpayer. UK Shared Business Services Ltd changed its name from RCUK Shared Services Centre Ltd in March 2013. Our Customers Growing from a foundation of supporting the Research Councils, 2012/13 saw Business Innovation and Skills (BIS) transition their procurement to UK SBS and Crown Commercial Service (CSS - previously Government Procurement Service) agree a Memorandum of Understanding with UK SBS to deliver two major procurement categories (construction and research) across Government. UK SBS currently manages £700m expenditure for its Customers, our growth projections anticipate this will rise to £1bn in 2013/14. Important information From the 2nd April 2014 the Government is introducing its new Government Security Classifications (GSC) classification scheme to replace the current Government Protective Marking Scheme (GPMS). A key aspect of this is the reduction in the number of security classifications used. All potential suppliers should make themselves aware of the changes as it may impact on this Requirement. The link below to the Gov.uk website provides information on the new GSC: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/government-security-classifications Aim - to test the hypothesis that there is, or will be, unmet demand for intermediate technical education in HE, and to identify the impact of previous Government initiatives in this area. Context for the research Successive Governments have prioritised changes to the vocational education (VE) system in the UK, with a view to enhancing the outcomes for learners and employers, and ultimately to supporting economic growth through the development of skills needed for current and future employment roles. The VE system is complex – it serves different purposes, linked to an individual’s particular circumstances and employment, extending from relatively basic skills training to more technical apprenticeships, long-standing higher education pathways into the professions and specific industries, and highly specialised postgraduate education.1 The unifying element can be considered to be an explicit focus on developing and enhancing skills and knowledge for use in the workplace, with studies in many cases being undertaken in tandem with work.2 A high proportion of research and debate in this area has focused on what might be termed the tertiary level at the interface between FE and HE. Most recently, and in response to perceived needs of high value industries such as those being prioritised within the Government’s industrial strategy, there has been a specific interest in technical education in HE. This has a more precise focus on the skills and knowledge needed to apply science and technology in the workplace, but at an intermediate level distinct from the established professions in these areas. The provision needed to address this is commonly thought to be situated at levels 4 and 5 of the Framework for HE Qualifications (FHEQ), with imperatives both for stand-alone provision and progression to higher levels. The development of Foundation Degrees during the last decade was seen as a route to stimulate intermediate technical vocational provision, with the Government consultation of 2000 stating “if we are to address industry’s needs then we must equip students with the appropriate specialist skills at the technician/associate profession level.”3 While technical training has featured in the growth of Foundation Degrees, the subjects recruiting most Foundation Degree students are areas such as business studies, creative arts and education, and there have been questions about the degree to which programmes provide the technical specialism needed to address the Government’s original aspiration. Intermediate level HE has declined in recent years in terms of student numbers, including Foundation Degrees,4 and the Government is currently consulting on the transfer of 1 For an analysis of UK intermediate level vocational education in its international context, see OECD (2013) A skills beyond school review of England 2 For a definition of vocational education, see for example Edge Foundation (2008) The VQ Landscape 2008: A review of vocational qualification achievements in the UK 3 Department for Education and Employment (2000) Foundation Degrees Consultation Paper, available to download at: http://dera.ioe.ac.uk/4448/ 4 HEFCE (2014) Undergraduate courses other than first degrees: An analysis of recent trends 9 responsibility for funding HNCs / HNDs to the SFA, with a view to providing more control over the quality and focus of, and expenditure on, provision at this level, including more competition for the established awarding bodies.5 Growth in apprenticeship opportunities, including at the higher levels, has been central to the Government’s ambitions on skills, but it has been argued that there are barriers for Higher Education Institutions to engage through, for example, Foundation Degrees, due firstly to the routing of subsidies through SFA-funded qualifications and secondly to the need to operate within the apprenticeships framework. In the 2014 Budget, the Government announced an additional £20 million for degree and masters level apprenticeships and the Skills Funding Agency is now exploring models of co-funding - with £2 of Government funding for every £1 from employers - to achieve this. Early signs suggest a push towards new degree level apprenticeships. Scope of the work required There is a widespread view that the expansion of intermediate technical HE will be central to the nation’s support for innovation and growth. In the current environment, however, this is unlikely to be supported by Government funding alone, and employers and individuals will need to share responsibility. As a consequence, and taking into account the precedent of Foundation Degrees during the last decade, there is a need for further evidence to test whether there is demand from employers at this level. In particular, we need to understand issues such as: the nature of the provision at HE intermediate level in technical subjects that employers require; the extent to which current qualifications meet their needs; the factors that would lead to enhanced employer investment, provider interest and student demand for such provision; and how to overcome perceived barriers to expansion. Given the emphasis on private-sector growth within the Government’s industrial strategy, there is a particular imperative to address these questions with reference to industrial growth sectors. Given previous Government initiatives, it will be important also to understand whether and how these are perceived to have worked. In this context, the contractor will be expected to test the hypothesis that there is, or will be, unmet demand for intermediate technical education in HE, and to identify the impact of previous Government initiatives in this area. This will be achieved by: a. Collating existing evidence on current and future employer demand in this area, identifying any evidence gaps, for example through a rapid review of evidence. b. Gathering views from a range of relevant stakeholders on employer demand, drawing on their evidence where appropriate, and on the impact of previous Government initiatives in this area, for example the development of Foundation degrees. 5 https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/321921/bis-14-861-future-development-of-loans-in-further-education-consultation-v2.pdf 10 Tenderers will need to decide how best to focus the research in order to achieve the desired outcomes within the available budget. For example, by working with the existing literature and evidence, targeting research at specific sectors aligned with the Government’s industrial strategy, focusing on specific regions and / or types of business as exemplars, and working with representative bodies. The research will need to gather sufficiently representative views in the targeted areas to secure robust results. The output required will be a report to HEFCE, outlining the findings of the research, drawing conclusions where appropriate, including scoping out further research needed to identify potential areas of employer demand/latent demand for intermediate Technical qualifications. Research findings will feed into policy development, but may also provide a platform for further research and data collection/analysis. The Council’s standard practice is to pay for the work on completion. If tenderers seek payment by instalments, then the Council will expect to see such payments associated with the delivery of identifiable products or the achievement of clearly defined milestones. Tenderers should indicate how this requirement will be met.
