The City of Doncaster Council is to establish a Flexible Procurement System (FPS) for the Provision of Children's Specialist Education Services under the light touch regime. The FPS for the Provision of Children's Specialist Education Services is part of the continuum of services that support children, young people, and their families. It provides a structured and organised approach that outlines the principles, guidelines, and strategies for providing specialist education provision to children and young people with unique learning needs or specific challenges such as school avoidance, trauma response behaviour or other emotional or behaviour concerns. This framework serves as a blueprint for designing, implementing, and evaluating educational programs that are tailored to address the diverse requirements of these children and young people, ensuring that they receive effective and targeted support in their learning journey.

The purpose of Engagement and Re-Integration is to establish a connection/rapport with the learner and with the mainstream setting which can be built on to move towards reengagement with learning in the short term.

Complete Tender Coverage

Following Brexit, the new official Find a Tender system has been developed by UK Government to detail all public procurement contract opportunities expected to be over £122, 976 for Central Government or £189,330 for the remainder of the public sector e.g. NHS contracts, Local Authority contracts, Housing Association contracts. Publishing requirements for all of the public sector are in place to ensure transparency, fairness and open competition.

All UK public sector opportunities under these values, but over £10,000 for central government or over £25,000 for other public sector organisations, are still required to be published on Contracts Finder. Scotland, Wales and NI also have their own dedicated sites: Public Contracts Scotland, Sell2Wales, eSourcing NI and eTendersNI.

Complete Tenders have centralised and consolidated all of this information into a single, easy to use platform that is updated hourly with all new opportunities.
