Description of the contract

The business need is to provide training for 100 UKBA Crime Directorate investigators to act as assessors, 20 investigators to be trained as verifiers (alongside training for one lead internal verifier) and to deliver 6 standardisation training events to quality assure assessment and verification of Professionalising Investigation Programme (PIP) portfolio assessments. The 6 standardisation events should be scheduled to take place every 3 months over a period of 18 months from commencement of contract. PIP has been formally adopted by the UKBA Crime Directorate and all new-to-role Criminal Investigators must now achieve PIP level 2 accreditation (at which point they will be designated to deal with serious and complex crime). This will be achieved by completion and submission of workplace portfolios evidencing professional competence against agreed National Occupational Standards to a level stipulated by NPIA. NPIA is the external verifier but UKBA is the awarding body and is responsible for assessment and verification, including an appeal process. Portfolios must be assessed by trained assessors (and this assessment subsequently verified by trained verifiers). As a result, this training requirement is urgent and pressing: there are currently no existing trained assessors/ verifiers in place. The first Initial Crime Learning Programme (ICLP) leading to temporary designation at PIP 1 commenced on 9th January 2012 and portfolio completion will be undertaken after completion of this element. Assessors and verifiers need to be in situ to deal with this asap and onwards in order to ensure that the PIP process is able to progress effectively. Therefore training will need to commence shortly after award of contract
