Contract Performance Conditions Apprenticeships

Increasing the number of Apprenticeship places is a core objective of DCSF.  The definition of VFM has changed, now including delivering wider government objectives and policies. A better trained workforce with reduced turnover should also deliver improvements in contract delivery.

This document provides an example of a contract performance condition that could be used to require the Contractor to support the delivery of Apprenticeships on your contract. In contracts that are subject to The Public Contracts Regulations 2006, to avoid breaching the Regulations, Contractors should not be assessed on their ability to meet this condition only that they accept the terms and conditions of the contract.
