II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) is in the initial stages of a project which intends to assess the interest in the market for providing an academic counter terrorism training course for frontline staff.

The requirement is to support intelligence and operational staff in the prison and probation service carrying out duties directly related to the management of terrorist and extremist offenders.

These roles are busy and operational, so to accommodate a geographically dispersed workforce any provision would need to be carried out by flexible interactive e-learning lessons, with associated online discussion forums and support.

There should be more than one intake for the course in a year to allow new staff to undertake the course as soon as possible. The course should last a maximum of 6 months. The number of staff required to undertake the course in one year will be discussed at a later date.

There must be a range of counter-terrorism modules to study including: terrorist ideologies, aims, beliefs and motivations and terrorist modus operandi.

The MoJ would like Providers to express their interest in this requirement by 1 May 2020 by contacting MoJProcurementLearningandDevelopment@Justice.gov.uk so the MoJ can keep Providers updated about this requirement.
