Provision of a Level 6 Degree Apprenticeship in Data Science


The Office for National Statistics, on behalf of the Government Statistical Service (GSS) in England are working to establish a single supplier Framework Agreement for Data Science Integrated Degree Apprenticeships. The Government Statistics (GSS) Service is one of the Civil Service Professions and is a community for all civil servants working in the collection, production and communication of official statistics.

The GSS recognises that investing in people and offering high-quality apprenticeships will enable it to grow an engaged and committed workforce that has the right skills to deliver a high-quality service to its end users. The Data Science Apprenticeship entry route is seen as a vital route into the GSS profession, allowing people from all backgrounds to study data science to degree level while working amongst and learning from experienced professionals across Government. 

Through this Framework Agreement, it is the GSS' intention to form an enduring professional relationship with a single apprenticeships training provider to deliver all of the Data Science Integrated Degree Apprenticeship Training for GSS member organisations across England. Current indications are that approximately 50 apprentices will be recruited for August 2019 starts, with potential to grow in subsequent years. 

The Framework Agreement will be available for use by UK public sector bodies (and any future successors to these organisations), which include Central Government Departments and their Arm's Length Bodies and Agencies, Non-Departmental Public Bodies, NHS Bodies and Local Authorities.

Framework Duration: The duration of the Framework Agreement is three (3) years with the right to extend for up to three (3) successive periods of 12 months (on a +1, +1, +1 basis), each at the option of the Authority. 

Tender Requirements: Please note the following mandatory requirements for all Suppliers bidding on this requirement:

•Experience in delivery of degree apprenticeships;

•Experience in delivery of Data Science / Computer Science degree programmes;

•Ability to deliver programme content to a variety of locations across England;

•Supplier must be on the Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers (RoATP);

•Have an online system available for learners to monitor, track and complete learning.
