Request for tenders for the delivery of core inputs into the Personal & Ongoing Development Programme (POD), under the Social Inclusion Community Activation Programme 2018 – 2022.

 

The overall aim of the POD programme is to provide initial engagement/education/training experiences to participants most distant from training, education, labour market. The programme will use an approach where these ‘distances’ – personal circumstances, levels and histories of education, training and employment, skills, structural barriers and opportunities – will be explored using a well-being approach, Personal Action Planning process and short information and training inputs.

Individuals will be identified through a targeted approach from one of the following groups; Disadvantaged children and Families, Disadvantaged Young People 15 – 24, The Unemployed, Lone Parents, People with Disabilities (in particular, those with disabilities not in mainstream supports), Travellers, Ex-Offenders, New Communities, Drug/Alcohol Services, Roma, Low Income Workers, People living in Disadvantaged Communities, and the economically inactive (those disengaged with labour market). KLP have also identified with the following cohorts in need of individual supports and will pilot a ‘women’s group’ in Ferrybank; rural women, women returning to work and young mothers parenting alone.

 

The group has been identified as needing to complete a ‘Soft Skills’ programme including a variety of self-assessments to identify their individual support needs. The majority of participants will be long term unemployed with other ‘issues’ identified as barriers to accessing mainstream services. IT and communication skills are vital components in order to give the group the best chance of progression to education, training or employment. Because of the duration members of the group have spent on the live register, many have become disconnected from services and this programme provides the supports and linkages to counter this.

The programme can be viewed as having two integrated elements. This includes a core module which will underpin the programme and have a well-being focus. This will facilitate an examination of personality types, skills sets, barriers and opportunities available to participants in a group setting. A Personal Action Planning Process will be directed by KLP staff as will the inputs from key service providers as they arise. The second element will focus on the integration of training/education/job supports that could extend from; NALA literacy testing, IT assessment, team building, job search skills, CV – building on and updating, employability skills, applications/Interviews/employers perspective, further education options

 

This tender is concerned with the delivery of the underpinning wellbeing element of the 5 programmes. This tender also relates to a coordinating function with in each of the five programmes; holding the group together, liaising with KLP staff to integrate the ‘other’ training elements as they are identified into each session and support generally the agreeing of the Personal Action Planning Process with participants. It is anticipated that each programme will be delivered over 2 sessions per week, 3 hours per session, for 8 weeks. The 5 programmes intends to support 50 participants.

 

Tenders should reflect;

  • The overall approach to the delivery of the core well-being element.
  • Areas covered in well-being ‘modules’ or other formats.
  • Outline of how the tenderer would see other elements integrated into the programme structure.
  • Outline of how co-operation with KLP staff will be approached.
  • Detail on the level of outcomes that the tenderer believes should deliver for participants.
  • A detailed set of costs – KLP will provide venues, training materials and refreshments etc.
