Description of the goods or services required

The City of Edinburgh Council is seeking to engage a suitably qualified moving and handling training provider to work with the Workforce Planning and Development (WPD) team to provide extensive moving and handling training of people and inanimate objects for Council Employees.

The successful organisation will be required to participate in the Scottish Manual Handling Passport which is due to be launched in autumn 2014 and will set out minimum standards against which an organisation can be measured.

The biggest need is from the Health and Social Care team, however there are generic aspects of this training that make it suitable for other teams including those from Services for Communities and Children & Families service area. To this end the propective Provider must be flexible in their approach to delivery, able to adapt training and offer bespoke packages when required. This may include working with other partners or sub-contracts or obtaining specialist input in some other way to meet the Council requirements.
