On behalf of the Discover Work Partnership, Dundee City Council may utilise the DPS during its’ lifetime (48 months) for the supply of Employability Services as opportunities emerge from No One Left Behind, Parental Employment Support, the Young Persons Guarantee, the UK Shared Prosperity Fund, Tay Cities Deal, and others. 

As we progress towards 2023/24, we will enter a transformational period in relation to Scotland’s employability services given progress with No One Left Behind, the end of the European Structural & Investment Fund, entering the final year of Fair Start Scotland, and the emergence of the UK Shared Prosperity Fund. 

We would encourage potential providers to consider their interest in the DPS should they wish to supply Employability Services on behalf of the Discover Work Partnership during the period 2022–2027.  Closing date on 17/03/22 at noon.
