Decision Maker: Director: Workforce and Change

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Organisational Improvement Plan (2018-2023) commits to building the skills and confidence of our front-line team leaders across the organisation to do the best job they can and to enable their teams to do the same. The Bristol Leads programme is helping us to achieve this.


To procure a supplier to:
Re-run the successful Bristol Leads programme for an additional 100-130 team managers. This is a practical business focused programme to support team managers to innovate, improve and deliver services to a high standard.
Provide practical support to the 150 team managers who completed the Bristol Leads 2018 programme to get the best from their teams and to continue applying the tools and approaches to improve services.

Alternative options considered:

The supplier for the Bristol Leads programme 2018 was procured through competitive tender via the ESPO 664 Framework. The decision to directly award the re-running of the programme in 2019 (contract value £250,000) to the same supplier offers the best value for money and is allowable under the ESPO Framework 664.
