RULES OF USE: How to use this SPC
Departments and public sector bodies can access the services of the Panel by entering into a contract with the relevant Cultural Awareness training provider.
Departments and public sector bodies do not contract directly with the VPSC in order to access a provider for Cultural Awareness training.
Departments and public sector bodies are required to send a carbon copy of the purchase orders raised in the engagement of training providers to the contract manager / category manager – firstname.lastname@example.org .
Non-service/sector staff that are affiliated with or that the department feels it has a responsibility to train may access this contract. Noting that the relationship between department and staff being trained is to be formally raised with the selected training provider prior to any purchase order being raised. Schedule 4 should be the first point of reference in relation to who can access the contract and receive training under the conditions of this contract. Any issues with acceptance of staff on this training are to be immediately referred to the contract/category manager.
*NB - Public sector organisations may require the sponsorship of their department.
