For up to a 4-year period, the public sector has complete access to the Framework agreement.
The free-to-access service is open to all public bodies, without the requirement for additional public procurement exercises.

What does the Managed Training Service provide?

The Managed Training Service provides organisations with the tools to address and transform their learning needs through the managed supplier model.
GP Strategies will monitor and maintain the quality of service. Whilst we deliver a percentage of the training, a range of proven specialist training organisations supplies the remainder.

This ESPO framework offers users a quick, simple and competitive route to purchasing Managed Training Services. View Quick Start Guide
