II.4)Short description of nature and quantity or value of supplies or services:

Currently professional qualification as a new Probation Officer is via a bespoke graduate-level training course.
This requires learners to complete an assessed programme of academic and practice learning in the specialist field of Probation.
The new Community Justice Learning (CJL) qualification includes a statutory qualification to become a Probation Officer and we are now required to develop and implement systems and process to support and deliver this requirement. It is expected that any resulting contractual agreement will be for 48 months duration (4 years) plus an option to extend for a further 24 months from commencement date.
Suppliers will be contracted to provide:
1) The academic elements of a QCF level 6 qualification of 120 credits (National Probation Service will provide the integrated vocational qualification, which will form part of this qualification).
2) A QCF level 5 qualification of 120 credits, including 4 mandatory modules that comprise the knowledge entry requirements for the level 6 programme and which may be undertaken independently of the full 120 credits.
3) Assignment/s at QCF level 4 designed to assess the potential of experienced practitioners with a relevant level 3 vocational qualification to progress with advanced standing to undertake the level 5 qualification.
4) A gateway process to accredit prior learning and identify those who meet the knowledge entry requirements as well as those who must complete additional module/s to do so. Potential candidates for the level 6 programme will require formal assessment of their prior learning to ensure they meet the minimum knowledge entry requirements. It is envisaged that the supplier shall ensure systems and processes are in place to manage this stage.
The supplier shall develop course materials which meet the MoJ aims and objectives set out in the regulatory framework. There shall be a requirement for the necessary accreditation of the learning to the appropriate level, QCF level 6, the CJL qualification, to be applied and any independent assurance shall form part of the supplier obligations.
To ensure flexibility of access for learners and to minimise abstraction for the workplace, it is envisaged that suppliers will make substantial use of distance/distributed learning in delivering the academic programmes set out above.
