The Working Manager supports Premier Partnership in successful Public Sector Bid
The Working Manager has worked closely with Premier Partnership, one of the UK’s leading Public Sector training providers, helping Premier Partnership to sole supplier status on the Eastern Shires Purchasing Organisation (ESPO) Managed Training Services framework.
TWM will support Premier by making an extensive catalogue of learning available to the public sector via a bespoke built learning portal.
Premier Partnership specialises in public sector training at a national level and the company has been awarded a position on this framework which will enable public sector bodies to call off training as required without the need to tender on each occasion. As one of the UK’s largest public sector procurement organisations, ESPO negotiates a range of EU compliant contract arrangements, aimed to get customers dealing directly with nominated suppliers.
The service will provide organisations with all elements of their learning need through the managed supplier model. Premier Partnership will act as the managed service for the contract as well as managing the quality of the service. They will provide a proportion of the training with the remainder being provided by a rich mix of training organisations with a track record in supplying learning to the public sector.
David Pearson, Marketing Director at Premier Partnership said, “This framework will enable local authorities and the wider public sector to save substantial sums from their training budgets as a result of lower cost training through economies of scale, better use of public courses open to multiple organisations and reduced procurement costs.”
Importantly, David went on to say “Where organisations have preferred suppliers we are more than willing to use them providing quality standards are met”.
Tracy Capaldi-Drewett, Commercial Director at The Working manager said “TWM’s portal will ensure that Premier Partnership can meet the specific needs of the public sector and enable learners, their managers or learning leads to quickly search, identify and book on to a range of public and organisational specific courses or request specific events”.
Initially intended for use by local authorities within the UK, the Framework Agreement will be open to all eligible public bodies in the UK. These will include organisations such as Public Health, Police, Fire and Rescue Services, Registered Charities and any Central Government Departments and their agencies wishing to access the Framework.
