    Created: 04/06/2019

    When: 10.00 - 11.30am, Tuesday 18 June 2019
    Where: New Volunteer House, 16 East Fergus Place, Kirkcaldy, KY1 1XT
    This event is being organised by Fife Voluntary Action
    This particular event is free to attend, so no payment is required.


    It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.

    DPS is the system used by DWP to commission local provision to help clients overcome barriers to work based on claimant need.

    DPS hosts a catalogue of accredited providers which enables DWP to source provision for specific client groups in the different areas of Fife. Generally DPS focuses on short courses but it can also fund longer-term provision.

    DWP want to support local organisations to register as accredited providers and post service offers on the system.

    This training session will:

    • Provide an overview of the DPS system and how organisations register to be accredited providers
    • Go through the different pathways, routeways and payment methods appropriate for different ‘service offers’
    • Outline what makes a good service offer  

    There will also be an opportunity to ask questions and seek clarification on any areas of DPS you are struggling with.  .  

    The training will begin promptly at 10am. Registration and refreshments will be available from 9.45am.

     Please note there is permit parking only available at New Volunteer House. However, Kirkcaldy train station is only a few minutes walk away and has lots of free parking spaces.
