This procurement follows the Open under the Public Contract Regulations 2015. The Authority is committed to ensuring their workforce is competent and confident to carry out their responsibilities to both support adults at risk (including its workforce) and is also committed to promoting the mental wellbeing of Isle of Wight residents and expect all staff and volunteers to share in this commitment. The Authority wants to engage with a supplier that has extensive experience of the delivery of mental health learning & development activities (including Mental Health First Aid and Suicide Prevention).

The successful supplier will need to demonstrate their understanding and knowledge of national legal frameworks, as well as policies and procedures as accredited providers of Mental Health and Suicide Prevention First Aid certification. Please note that the Authority requires Learning activities to be aimed at a variety of levels when providing the services. Potential suppliers should note that this is a non-exclusive contract and that there is no guarantee of value or volume of activities.
