Provision of Apprentices and Apprentice Scheme

The Government has committed to achieve 3 million apprenticeships in England by 2020 and has set targets of 2.3% of headcount to be apprentices each financial year for public bodies with 250 or more workers. NICE are therefore procuring services to enable us to appoint supplier(s) to attract and recruit apprentices covering a wide range of subject areas within Central Manchester and Central London, (or both). It is envisaged that this is delivered by using a combination of internal and external candidates of a similar number each year as a rolling programme of work. Each apprentice will be supported and trained through their apprenticeship programme. This would mean that successful providers will be required to include assessments, monitoring, record keeping and regular reports on individual's progress through the programme. Please note that NICE currently has apprentices in situ from previous years. These arrangements will not be taken into consideration, each proposal will be evaluated on the basis of the information provided. The Role of the Apprentice Scheme Supplier NICE requires 6 common sets of roles in differing volumes and these roles will be of broad compositions as standard, a 7th role will be of variable composition dependant on the needs of NICE and will be bespoke for each role identified.
