ERSA and the Institute of Employability Professionals Announcement
December 14, 2020

Last night (10th December 2020) the DWP’s Tier one CAEHRS Framework Providers received information relating to stage one of the ITT relating to the Restart Programme.
As we understand it, the full specification of the ITT will be shared in a virtual data room, expected to go live on Wednesday 16 December. Once we have this, both organisations will share with members and the wider sector.
Further information
The Restart Programme was announced on 25 November in the SR20 as part of a package of £3.7 billion additional funding allocated to support frontline services and to enable DWP to deliver on July’s Plan for Jobs to support people back into work. The Restart programme will provide intensive and tailored support to over 1 million unemployed people and help them find work in England and Wales, with approximately £400million investment in 2021-22. The first step in a £2.9 billion three-year programme.
The DWP’s CAEHRS Framework
ERSA will be facilitating market engagement information and networking activity to support the employability sector.

 We will be in touch with more information as soon as it is available.
