Upcoming Training and Development framework now out to tender
20 September 2021

We are pleased to be working with NHSEI, who provided support and expertise for Lot 4, to develop a new framework that will assist our customers in adapting to the changing health and care landscape. The Hub’s Training and Development framework will provide an innovative suite of services to support a wide range of our customers’ training needs. This framework aims to showcase technologically advanced learning and support mechanisms whilst meeting local safety governance.


The proposed framework has six Lots:

Lot One – One-to-One Coaching and Mentoring Services: support for an individuals’ personal development through facilitation of bespoke services.   Providers for Lot 1 should be able to demonstrate expertise in successfully delivering the following specialisms: 

  • Leadership 
  • Executive 
  • Working in Collaboration 
  • Effective Communication
  • Individual upskilling 


Lot Two – Training Programmes: Support for individuals within structures which need to address skill and knowledge gaps within the evolving arena of people/population centric services. Support from training and upskilling services under this lot will provide individuals with tools and techniques to identify and implement positive change.


Lot Three – Innovative, Synaptic, Memory and Reality Learning: To provide new and accelerated learning or learning development through the application of neuroscience and other cognitive memory formation learning and retention. This could be in isolation or a collaboration of providers awarded against the framework. 


Lot Four – Systems Approach to Learning from Patient Safety Incidents: To support the development of core understanding and application of systems-based patient safety incident response in line with NHS guidance, based upon national and internationally recognised good practice.

  • Lot Four (a) – Systems Approach to Learning from Patient Safety Incidents Training
  • Lot Four (b) – Systems Approach to Learning from Patient Safety Incidents Oversight Training
  • Lot Four (c) – Patient and Staff Involvement in Learning from Patient Safety Incidents Training


Lot Five – System Leadership: Support individuals, such as leaders and chairs, to help them lead and shape services and system development through relevant upskilling.  It is intended that this will support the attributes and outcomes enacted from the Tom Kark QC and Jane Russell (Barrister) paper “A review of the Fit and Proper Person Test” commissioned by the Minister of State for Health, or other requirements as they become applicable during the lifetime of the framework. 


Lot Six - Multi-Disciplinary Upskilling: Providers awarded to the framework can request access to the deliver services against this lot in collaboration with other Providers also awarded to the framework or through partnership to deliver unique and or bespoke material.  This Lot would be used where the scope of the work involved was particularly wide ranging and broad in its nature such that the scope of the service required was not able to be procured solely under any one of the specialist individual Lots.
