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.
