II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

HEE are commissioning training for a new post that draws on the experience of the highly successful adult IAPT PWP programme, to create a new cohort of psychological practitioners capable of delivering high-quality, evidence-based interventions for mild to moderate difficulties in a way that can be efficiently brought to scale. We propose to make more effective use of the large cohorts of very able graduates in psychology and a range of other disciplines to deliver and support, under supervision, brief, outcome-focused evidence-based interventions for children and young people experiencing mental health difficulties.

The programme will benefit from being integrated fully within CAMHS and linked to the CYP IAPT collaborative, which brings a valuable organisational infrastructure for sustainable models of teaching, supervision and clinical governance. On the advice of the National Clinical Adviser for CYP IAPT successful bidders will already be HEIs representing CYP IAPT collaboratives. Bidders will be expected to estimate the numbers of training places that they can accommodate for each of the courses starting in 2016/17, and demonstrate previous extensive experience of delivering training programmes at a comparable level according to CYP IAPT principles.

HEE is looking for training providers capable of delivering these curricula to a high standard at pace, with the 1st intake of trainees in 2016/17. Individual trainees will be identified by providers of CYP MH services whether commissioned by NHS or other commissioning bodies such as local authorities. Service providers nominating individual trainees will already be part of CYP IAPT partnerships, or will confirm their intention to join such a partnership in 2016/17. HEE reserves the right to impose conditions on the trainee selection processes of either service providers or HEIs to ensure that trainees’ gender and ethnicity is representative of the communities that they are intended to serve.
