To seek approval to conduct an EU public procurement law compliant procurement process to award a framework contract and call-off contracts thereunder apprenticeship provider(s) for the delivery of apprenticeship training for non-qualified social work staff for a period of six years.
The shortage of qualified social workers is a national issue. The council has significant gaps in the resources it needs to manage the demand on social work services. One of the few strategies available to the council for increasing the social work resource is to develop our own pool of stable professionals with a commitment and loyalty to Gloucestershire. It is envisaged that a decision to use local and existing staff will increase loyalty to Gloucestershire.
