Portsmouth City Council work with a range of high quality providers to deliver outstanding apprenticeships to our staff. We are also accredited on the Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers (ROATP) as a provider delivering to levy paying employers.
In our direct delivery it is not our normal policy to use sub contracted provision, however the Council is committed to ensuring that our staff and local people receive the best training opportunities through Apprenticeships at all times. In specialist circumstances, the Council will consider partnerships to deliver specific standards identified through training needs analysis as key to business development. This is dealt with on a case by case review and led by the needs of the HR department of the Council.
In 2018/19 the Council has not used any Subcontracting partners for the delivery of Apprenticeships delivered by the Council as an internal provider.
