ESPO Managed Training Service

ESPO can save you time and money

How the ESPO Managed Training Service can help you

The Framework contract is open to the entire any public body for four years and means all public sector bodies are free to use the service without any further public procurement exercises.  The service provides organisations with all elements of their learning need through the managed supplier model.  Premier Partnership will manage the quality of the service and provide a proportion of the training with the remainder being provided by a rich mix of training organisations with a track record in supplying learning to the any public body. 
The service incorporates a secure web-based learning portal where learners, their Managers or learning leads can quickly search, identify and book on to a range of public and organisational specific courses or request a specific event.
