PCS has been told that the end date for the contract with Premier Partnership for delivery of apprenticeship training and support will be 13 December.
Members and their line managers should have received notification of the end date for the contract of 13 December. The Department says it will continue to support all of the Apprentices who are affected by this. The Department has also produced a FAQ to address some of the likely concerns.
PCS is aware that this announcement will be unsettling for those members affected and is seeking discussions with the Department to clarify the impact of it for those members still working toward completing their Apprenticeship with Premier Partnership.
Members should speak to their line manager in the first instance to raise any questions or issues that they may have regarding this.
If members have further concerns they should speak to their local rep who can highlight any issues to Leeds@pcs.org.uk so that the GEC can take these up with the Department if required.
