Proposal for a Bristol Apprenticeship Service

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


This report recommends the implementation of a service transformation project to eradicate duplication and deliver one seamless apprenticeship service. This will achieve our local authority levy and savings targets. It will also provide strong system leadership and capacity building support to develop a strong and diverse workforce within BCC and also enable local employer partners to develop their apprenticeship provision.


1) Noted the establishment of a new single Apprenticeship Service to transform our   

    management and delivery of apprenticeships both within Bristol City Council and

    across partner employers in the city.


2) Approved the development and publishing of a new single commissioning

    framework to enable the Council to procure apprenticeship services from external

    providers as soon as possible.


3) Approved delegated authority for the Apprenticeship Manager to establish the

    framework and enter into contracts with framework providers.
