BPP named as a provider for £360m civil service apprenticeship framework 28/09/2017

BPP Professional Education has been named as an apprenticeship training provider by the Crown Commercial Service.

The service has recently appointed 16 providers to a framework tasked with delivering apprenticeships for the civil service. Alongside BPP Professional Education, the £360m project also includes Interserve Learning and Employment, Capita and The Open University, all chosen to help deliver the government’s new approach to on-the-job learning.

James Hammill, Director of BPP Professional Apprenticeships, expressed his delight in the appointment and spoke of the mutual benefits for all parties: “we are extremely happy that BPP has been successfully appointed to this framework. We currently deliver a range of programmes to organisations across the public sector and look forward to help develop the careers of both new recruits and existing public sector staff in the months and years ahead.”

The framework is split into 12 lots that include programmes on leadership and management training, business and administration, digital training and commercial services.

BPP will be delivering programmes across Accountancy, HR and Higher Level Digital via the framework.

Peter Lawson, Strategic Category Director for people at the CCS, said

“This agreement supports the government to train the next generation of public servants, who will eventually be responsible for delivering efficient, effective services that meet the needs of citizens.”

The Apprenticeships framework is available to all central government departments, their arm’s length bodies and the wider public sector. Organisations who wish to access the framework or discuss how it could be used are requested to email atrs@crowncommercial.gov.uk

BPP now offers over 30 exciting apprenticeship programmes, across multiple disciplines and levels, for new and existing staff. Firms who are interested in developing their talent in can discuss this with our expert team via corporate@bpp.com or visit employers.bpp.com
