Total quantity or scope of tender

Making Clackmannanshire Better” is the Council’s Corporate Transformation Programme which aims to provide

Better Services

Better Opportunities

Better Communities

MCB contains Workstreams and Key Themes with both External and Internal Focus. Within the Making our Organisation Stronger Workstream is a key high-profile project to develop our managers and create effective and sustainable leadership.

This is essential to assist us in delivering our priorities, promoting a positive organisational culture, and supporting and valuing our people.

The programme will consist of three ‘pathways’, with the first phase covering Service Managers and Team Leaders initially, followed by a Growing Our Own talent development pathway in phase 2.

Within each pathway thematic areas have been identified based upon the Council’s policies and procedures, our Behavioural Competency Framework, areas identified by Team Leaders and Managers, review of best practice as well as discussions with colleagues within HR.

E-learning will form a key component in the delivery of the programme. The procurement of the Council’s own e-learning system is underway and will form a key deliverable in support of the programme.

This programme will also sit alongside corporate learning and development covering all employees, and ties in with other projects within MCB such as Employee Induction and the further development of the Core Competency Framework.
