The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) has launched the Initial Selection Stage for providers to join the Prison Education DPS (PEDPS).
The PEDPS will provide prison Governors with a flexible commissioning route for short to medium term needs up to one year, one-off requirements and services that support and complement the core educational offer in prisons. In particular, the MoJ wants to access innovative approaches to custody education that deliver against the needs of specific cohorts of offenders and education and training that contributes to employment and/or wider rehabilitative outcomes.
The Initial Selection Stage will close on Wednesday 17, October 2018 at 15:00. Once the PEDPS has been established, the Ongoing Selection Stage will commence on Friday 9, November 2018.
Applications to join the PEDPS should be made via the MoJ Bravo portal.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you require support with submitting a tender to the PEDPS.
