II.3)Short description of the specific contract:

Rotherham MBC and its Partners are inviting bids from shortlisted providers on the Learning and Development DPS who are able to provide.
The Care Certificate will replace the National Minimum Training Standards and the Common Induction Standards in March 2015. It will train Support Workers to know what is required of them to be caring and equip them with the skills to provide quality care. It is the key foundation for sustaining and developing the performance of every Support Worker.
The Care Certificate will set out the learning outcomes, competences and standard of behaviour that will be required for our adult social care workforce in Rotherham. The Standards contain both knowledge and competence outcomes that must be evidenced from real work activities with customers and observed by the Support Worker’s assessor.
Details of the Care Certificate Standards may be found on the Skills for Care website.
Rotherham MBC wishes to commission a 3-day workshop to train workers in the knowledge and understanding requirements, as set out in the Standards. The workshop must include an assessment of this knowledge and understanding by an occupationally competent person, for each learner.
The workshops are required from March 2015. Initially the Council expects to offer one workshop per month, until demand is established, moving to a workshop every other month. Each workshop would need to accommodate between 6 to 12 learners, and run on 3 consecutive days. The workshop would be expected to utilise some self-directed study to maximise learning across the 3-days and beforehand.
Each workshop and its training materials should be relevant to the role, setting, and the needs of the people using the service and link to: National Occupational Standards, the Code of Conduct for Adult Social Care Workers, and the Care Framework (Assessor, Technical and Worker documents).
This workshop specification covers the planning and designing of the training workshop, its delivery, reviewing the progress of and assessing each learner against the ‘knowledge’ Standards. It also includes evaluation of each workshop.
Planning and design includes: producing a scheme of work and session plan(s), producing a workshop programme, and the design and production of learning materials. Delivery includes teaching and facilitating learning with individuals and groups and provision of supporting materials for each learner. Progress review and assessment includes monitoring, assessing individual achievement, assessing competence, and issuing a certificate of achievement. Effectiveness improvement includes the evaluation of the workshop delivery against set learning outcomes/objectives and reflection to improve future training workshop design.
Reaction level evaluation by the learner and training provider is required to take place, and be provided, as part of workshop delivery to gauge the satisfaction of learners with the learning experience and how effective they felt it had been in meeting their learning needs and the set learning outcomes. It should as a minimum report against:
— Did a pre-workshop briefing take place with the learner by their line manager / supervisor?
— The extent to which learning objectives were or were not met?
— An indication of the practical relevance of the training to the learner’s job role?
— Feedback on the quality of the training provider and methods used on the workshop?
All training workshop delivery will take place (unless otherwise agreed) at venues owned by or hired by Rotherham Council with all costs including refreshments met by the Council.
