Skills Support for the Workforce (SSW) is a programme developed to upskill employees within small and medium sized businesses. Serco is the Prime Contractor and contracts out 100% of the delivery to a supply chain of training providers.
We provide recognised accredited qualifications and bespoke training courses to enhance employee’s skills, increase the competitiveness of businesses and boost the local economy. We can work with employers to develop a bespoke training programme relevant to their needs and because this programme is co-financed by the European Social Fund (ESF) and the ESFA, a wide range of training can be accessed at no cost to the business. SSW is all about progress – we can help progress careers, education and business.
Serco has recently entered a third period of delivering SSW, having successfully closed the second round of funding which ran from 2016 to March 2019. During that stage we managed 15 contracts across nine LEP areas with a total contract value of £40.5m. In the current period, Serco has been awarded 17 SSW contract across 15 LEP areas with a total contract value of £60.5m.
In each of its SSW regions, Serco is tasked with creating case studies to celebrate and demonstrate the success and impact that the training activity is having for leaners, employers and the wider economy.
We are looking for a supplier to provide the delivery of video case studies focusing on learners and businesses throughout 15 LEP Regions of England.
The videos will bring to life the experiences and impact of training delivered through the SSW programme.
The project will run until July 2021. The requirement for video case studies will flex throughout this period and may finish ahead of the project end date.
We require eye-catching, engaging and stylish videos. Filming locations will vary and could include; premises of our training providers, on site at the business premises or other locations such as events or conferences, to be decided on a case by case basis.
