3 3 Introduction The new Integrated Adult Careers Service will be implemented on the 1 st August The service will provide a universal offer, for all those in and out of work and will also provide targeted support focusing on people with specific barriers to getting into and on in work. Working with partners will be essential for the service to achieve its vision and bring together a wide range of services into one single access point. The service has a number of targets (a) to reach – engagement via partners is an essential route to meeting these targets Background The Partnership Strategy outlines the approach to working with partners, from engagement to ongoing relationship management. The strategy identifies the partnership arrangements for the service and provide direction on how these partners should be managed in the future. Furthermore, the strategy will provide the first step to ensuring that the Agency provides clear and joined-up messages to its partner organisations, a key element in the transition to the new service. Purpose of the document To present the current and proposed future Integrated Adult Careers Service partners for Destination 1 To outline the benefits each partner brings to the service To outline an approach for developing and managing new and existing partnerships To outline the implementation plan to transition partners to the new service Objectives The scope of the partnership strategy covers the organisations identified as partners by the partnership strategy working group and client sponsor (Sally Oakley). It does not cover external organisations identified as stakeholders (or supplier management. While the partnership team regularly works with internal teams, internal relationship management is considered to outside the scope of this strategy. The partnership strategy will focus on partners identified as important to delivery of the SIM. Organisations considered to be partners post delivery of the SIM will need to be included in future partnership work. Scope 1 Source: (a) Service volumes outlined in the Service Implementation Model (Delivering the Service) v3.0 (April 2010)

4 Executive Summary

5 5 Partners support the agency to increase visibility and demand into the service, and it is important to outline a strategy for identifying and managing them in preparation for the introduction of the new service -Existing partners account for 50% of current Careers Advice Service volume/traffic. -Referral from Jobcentre Plus accounts for approximately 60 % of face-to-face interventions -Partners drive approximately 50% of traffic to the current Skills Accounts website. Partners are defined as external organisations who hold a partnership agreement with the agency, monitored and managed through Service Level Agreements (SLA), but may also include relationships where there is an association that has substantial benefit to the service. Partners bring four main benefits to the agency -Drive demand for the service -Enable the service to engage hard to reach (priority) groups -Endorses the brand of the service through association with trusted organisations -Support policy commitments and government agendas. Partners are currently supported by the three channels that make up the service: web, face-to-face and telephone -While there will be minor changes to the partner offer for face-to-face and telephone, there will be a significant change in emphasis in the web offer, including the integration of Skills Accounts into the web channel. To determine the future partner landscape, a benefits assessment was conducted for current and potential future partner organisations -We recommend that 7 out of the 14 current careers advice web and telephone partners are taken forward as partners to the new service, and identified a further 6 organisations to engage as potential future partners -A quarterly review of the partner landscape will ensure that future partners continue to deliver value All partners will need to be managed through the transition to the new service -Existing partners will be managed through the transition by their dedicated partnership manager (or via Prime Contractors for face-to-face partners) -Partner organisations will be engaged by a single partnership function. To ensure an effective and joined up approach to partnership management, the team will work in collaboration with internal agency teams including policy, stakeholder and marketing A high level implementation plan outlines the required activities for the future engagement and management of partner organisations Some recommended next steps have been outlined which identify how the strategy can be implemented -The key next steps are sign off the partnership strategy by the SIA and review of face to face partners following submission of the Prime Contractor implementation plans 2

6 The Partner Landscape (existing & new)

7 7 The key distinction between a partner versus a stakeholder is the presence of a partnership agreement External organisations Partnership agreement* in place through which the agency and organisation are actively working towards an agreed target / goal – termed a win-win relationship Partnership is managed and monitored through Service Level Agreements (SLAs) Partners External or Internal Stakeholders need to be aware of the service and, in some cases, support the service in some way (e.g. cascading messages through the organisation) but not within a partnership agreement Stakeholders A number of organisations were identified as both partners and stakeholders but this document will only focus on partner organisations Positioning of Partners and Stakeholders *The nature of face to face channel partner relationships (distinct from those that are procured and managed by contracts) range in the degree of formality in some cases partnership agreements are not in place. However the relationship is characterised by mutual benefit and we will continue to refer to these organisations, e.g. Learning Providers, as partners in the strategy. Note: A review of these partners against policy will take place in Q4. 3

8 8 Partners bring a number of benefits to the skills funding agency in the delivery of its services Partners support the agency in increasing visibility and demand into the service The four main benefits of partners Drive demand for the service (e.g. supporting the agency to deliver within a reduced marketing budget) 1 Enable the service to engage hard to reach (priority) groups Endorses the brand of the service through association with trusted organisations Support policy commitments and government agendas (e.g. the employment and skills agenda) Partnership benefits are aligned to the Integrated Adult Careers Service targets (a) 3 Source: (a) Service volumes outlined in the Service Implementation Model (Delivering the Service) v3.0 (April 2010). Targeted volumes for each channel: Telephone 1 million sessions per year; face to face 700,000 individuals engaged per full financial year; Web 20 million sessions per year

9 9 Partners are supported by the three channels that make up the service (Web, Telephone and face to face) From August 2010 the bespoke web offer will be replaced by a link to the Integrated Adult Careers Service for their website Careers Advice Web current partner offer Call Me – Customers can contact advisers via the call me function whereby the customer enters their contact number and is subsequently called by an adviser. Some partner organisations host a call me function on their website Portal – Mini portal to a Course directory hosted on the agency site but branded according to the organisation an adviser – Similar to call me customers can contact advisers via the an adviser function whereby the customer enters their address and is subsequently contacted by an adviser.

10 10 For the telephone channel some partners are offered a dedicated phone service while others are managed through the core service There will be no immediate change to the partner offer through the telephone channel with the introduction of the new service Telephone channel current partner offer Dedicated telephone number - Unique telephone number and branded according to the partners organisation (or campaign). Calls are handled by telephone contact centre, but there is a personalised salutation. Partners also have a data set within the CRM allowing them to receive meaningful Management Information Core service number – Generic number handled by the telephone contact centre with no personalised salutation. The core service may include a fulfilment offer whereby the contact centre offers a product (e.g. application form or information pack ) to the caller depending on the nature of the enquiry Overview of offersPartner Landscape PartnerDedicated phone CoreFulfilment BBC Campaign for Learning Agency funded Campaign for Skills for Life (Get on) DELNI Health, Learning & Skills Home & Communities Academy (HCA) Jobcentre Plus (JCP) NIACE (Adult Learners Week) NIACE (Sign up now) UK Online Centres Union Learn SSC - Asset Skills SSC - Creative and cultural service SSC - IMI (Automotive skills) SSC - SEMTA SSC - Skills Active SSC - Skillset Careers SSC - Summit Skills YPLA 3

11 11 Prime Contractors engage and manage partner organisations to support delivery of the face to face component of the service The partner landscape for face-to-face is unknown at this stage due to ongoing agency contractual discussions but it is unlikely to change significantly Face to face provision Prime Contractors manage, coordinate, and are accountable for the delivery of face to face careers and skills advice to adults The Prime Contractor obligations (a) sets out requirements relating to national and regional partnership working: It is a requirement that the Prime Contractor develops strong partnership working arrangements with key national and regional partners The specification also outlines Prime Contractor service requirements relating to integration of face to face services with the other components of the core offer from August 2010 Regional Managers from the Skills Funding Agency manage the Prime Contactors to ensure delivery against contractual obligations Overview of service componentPartner landscape Awaiting delivery plans from Prime Contractors Source: (a) Schedule 1a National Specification 19/05/2010 LondonNorth East North West West Midlands East Midlands South East South West Y&HEast of England Partner Organisation 3

12 12 Skills Accounts – Current Partner Activity Trials of Skills Accounts have also included substantial partnership activity In particular, approximately 50% of the demand for skills accounts has been driven by Learning Providers. Learning Providers promote accounts, encourage individuals to register for an account and provide feedback for the service. A mapping exercise was undertaken for skills accounts, and this needs reviewing to inform partner activity as the Skills Account becomes integrated within the overall integrated adult careers service offer from August The future partner landscape for skills accounts will be picked up under partner engagement for the Web Channel

13 13 A review was conducted of existing Careers Advice web and telephone partners, leading to recommendations for the future partner landscape Through the review process the partnership team will ensure they focus on the relationships that deliver the highest value Benefits Assessment Recommendations BBC DELNI NHS Jobcentre Plus (JCP) Union Learn UKOnline Campaign for Learning NIACE Home & Communities Academy (HCA) Direct Gov SSCs Agency funded Campaign for Skills for Life (Get on) Adult Learning Grant Professional Career Development Loan Current Partner Landscape Partners assessed against the four identified partnership benefits: 1.Drive demand for the service 2.Enable the service to engage hard to reach (priority) groups 3.Endorses the brand of the service through association with trusted organisations 4.Support policy commitments and government agendas The benefits assessment will yield three possible outcomes: 1.Continue: The partnership continues to deliver mutual benefits Continue the partnership as outlined in the partnership agreement 2.Handover: The partnership is no longer delivering mutual benefits and a dedicated partnership is no longer the most appropriate relationship Handover the relationship to a more appropriate team in the agency* (e.g. marketing, comms and stakeholder management) and inform the organisation of the change 3.Decommission: The partnership is no longer delivering mutual benefits and there is no identified requirement to continue the agency-organisation relationship Decommission the partnership Partner Review Process* *There is an assumption that the future agency organisation structure will support the review process outlined 3

14 14 As a result of the review process we recommend that the partner relationship continues with 7 of the current partners The partner landscape will be reviewed on a quarterly basis to determine whether the partner relationship is delivering value to the service Partner benefit assessment (web and telephone)* 3 Continue partnership Partner Drive demand for the service Engage Priority Groups Endorses the brand of the service Support policy commitmen ts Low SkilledRedund ancy JCPEthnic minoriti es 50+LLDDOffende rs BBC DELNI* NHS Jobcentre Plus (JCP)* Union Learn UK Online NIACE Campaign for Learning Home & Communities Academy (HCA) BIS Direct Gov SSCs YPLA (Adult Learning Grant & PCDL) Decomm ission Handover Assessment against priority groups not completed for organisations recommended for decommission, handover to a different agency team or identified as an internal relationship

15 15 For the remaining CAS web/telephone partners, we recommend 2 are decommissioned while 4 are transitioned to a more appropriate function in the agency OrganisationRecommendation*Reason Sector Skills Council HandoverThe partnership team currently works with 10 out of the 25 SSCs. We would expect SSCs to engage with the service, but suggest the relationships with SSCs continue under a wider sector skills strategy through the Secotr Team in collaboration with IACS functions. Recommendation: The sector team are accountable for management of SSCs, including coordinated engagement with SSCs across the agency. The dedicated phone line for the SSCs (total 6) will be decommissioned as part of the Q4 review. Campaign for Learning (IAL) DecommissionThe level of resources needed to manage the partnership does not deliver significant demand from the relationship. Campaign for learning is a very localised campaign and would be better supported through local networks. Recommendation: Campaign for Learning is decommissioned Home & Communities Academy DecommissionThe HCA does not bring significant benefits to the service. The organisation is not directly related to learning and skills, therefore it is not an effective use of resources to engage with HCA as a partner. Recommendation: HCA is decommissioned Direct GovHandoverDirectGov brings a range of benefits to the agency. However the relationship is currently focussed on providing marketing support for the organisation. Recommendation: The marketing team (and e-comms) s accountable for the management of DirectGov Agency funded Campaign for Skills for Life (Get on) HandoverAgency funded Campaign for Skills for Life (Get on) brings benefits to the agency. However the relationship is purely operational and a dedicated partnership manager is not required for current engagement. Recommendation: BIS is taken forwards as a stakeholder whose requirements (e.g. marketing, comms) are managed by the appropriate agency team. (the operation will continue) YPLAHandoverAdult Learning Grant and Professional Career Development Loan will become part of the core service in the future. Recommendation: The relationship is owned by Marcomms to ensure the services are truly represnted (a MOU may need to be developed to manage the relationship). Operational enquries are handled by operational delivery (with an interface with the appropriate policy team) Changes to the partnership landscape will ensure that partnership engagement is focussed on organisations that clearly deliver against the identified benefits *There is an assumption that the future agency organisation structure will support the proposed recommendations 3 Recommendations

16 16 Future partners have been identified based on their perceived performance against benefits, particularly reaching priority groups New partners identified at a national level will be complemented by those engaged at a regional / local level by the face to face Prime Contractors Potential future partners Future Partners Future partner organisations are categorised as Priority – Organisations considered to be vital to the delivery of the service, to be engaged from July Long term – Organisations who are considered to be important to the delivery of the service and will be considered as part of the Q4 partner review (partners identified may change depending on the outcome of the review) A partnership may be formed on a national level (managed by the partnership team) or on a local level (managed by the face to face Prime Contractors) To ensure the partner offer meets the needs of the organisation (and their customers / users), the offer will be developed through discussions between the partnership manager and organisation The offer may include: Delivery support: The partnership manager will support the organisation to deliver the best possible service to the user / customer by providing service expertise and up-to-date service information Engagement support: The partnership manager uses their expertise, and existing networks, to support the organisation to reach and engage its user / customer base, for instance the manager may support development of consortia working relationships across different partner organisations Commentary Assumption that face to face Prime Contractors have (or will form) partner relationships with the following organisations: Recruitment Agencies and Services; FE Colleges; HEIs; WBL; Training Providers; nova; Employment and Skills Networks; NOMS; OLASS; Local Authorities; Children Services; and RDAs OrganisationLevelRecommendation* NatLoc* Charity Organisations Priority National – engage 3 organisations 1) Mind (mental health) 2) Age concern (50+) 3) Consumer Credit Counselling Service (CCCS) (Debt) Regional - Prime Contractors Regional / National Agencies (i.e. CAB, Health, Housing, Debt) Priority National – TBC following investigation by partnership team Regional - Prime Contractors Voluntary Sector Priority group National – TBC following investigation by partnership team (may include National Association for Voluntary and Community Action, Volunteering England) Regional – Prime Contractors Libraries Priority National - engage via BIS Regional - Prime Contractors NAS Long term partner acas Long term partner *Please see appendix A for the full benefits assessment 3 *The face to face Prime Contractors may already be engaging with the organisations identified - we will be able to confirm this once the implementation plans are received from the face to face Prime Contractors

17 Engagement and Management of partners

18 18 Partners can be engaged through six distinct routes, directly or indirectly via internal or external relationships The single Integrated Adult Careers Service partnership function will work in collaboration with other agency teams (and other government departments) to engage partners Description Direct Engagement 1.Broker a relationships directly with potential partner organisations 2.The agency is approached by an organisation to form a partnership Indirect Engagement 3.Look across the agency (including regional managers) for existing relationships / links and collaborate an approach. to engage the organisation 4.Use existing partner relationships with face to face Prime Contractors to develop a direct partnerships with the identified organisation 5.Use existing partnership relationships to engage organisations 6.Develop partnership with an organisation through BIS-stakeholder relationships Potential routes to engage partners Skills Funding Agency (other internal team) Existing partner organisation BIS Skills Funding Agency (Regional Manager) Face to face Prime Contractor Internal External Partnership Routes to engage partners Skills Funding Agency (Partnership Team)

19 19 Partnership Function The partnership function will drive partner engagement and management, working closely with the comms and stakeholder function to ensure a joined-up approach It is recommended that a single partnership function is created across all three channels to ensure alignment with the one vision, one brand, one service. High level organisation structure* Partnership Function – Responsible for the engagement and management of current and future partners across the agency Comms & Stakeholder Management Team** – Responsible for the design and delivery of comms and stakeholder management for the service. The team consists of: BIS – Lead on comms and stakeholder management. Responsible for engagement with : BIS staff; Influencers, the networks; and other government departments Marcomms – Responsible for engagement with face to face Prime Contractors and their frontline staff; Skills Funding Agency staff; and JCP staff. Marcomms also have a key role in supporting the partnership team to identify and engage partners and in the implementation of the partnership strategy Roles & Responsibilities Regular comms Partnership Group Meeting – Weekly updates within the single partnership team to discuss progress against the plan and raise issues / concerns. An output of this meeting is recommendations and issues / concerns to be raised to the SIA Operational Management meeting – Monthly meeting involving regional managers, attended by member of the partnership team to discuss the partner offer. Partnership Management meeting (NEW) - Quarterly meeting involving the partnership function, marcomms and BIS, and a regional champion with the objective of reviewing and agreeing the partner landscape for Integrated Adult Careers Service and ensuring alignment across the agency Operational marketing meeting – Monthly meeting to discuss and provide updates on marketing Governance Proposed Governance Arrangements Comms & Sholder Team (IACS) Partnership Function Lead IACS Managers (with the responsibility for managing partners) MarcommsBIS 4 *The future structure and governance arrangements will need to be taken forwards as part of organisation design **Please see appendix B for an overview of the comms and stakeholder management approach Learner Services Managers (Regions)

20 20 A standardised process to engage partners will ensure a consistent approach to future partnership arrangements The monthly operational management meeting would allow join up across the partnership function and face to face Prime Contractors Process to engage and manage partners The partnership function will drive the identification and engagement of new partners for the Integrated Adult Careers Service The partnership team will engage organisations through six main routes (as outlined on the following slide) – we expect the majority of partnership relationships to form as a result of direct engagement or engagement via the face to face Prime Contractors To ensure a coordinated approach to partner engagement the partnership team will regularly engage with the Regional Managers (and face to face Prime Contractors) through the monthly operational management board We recommend a rolling agenda item at the meeting to discuss progress against the partnership strategy and partner engagement Description 4 Process to engage and manage partners

21 21 Partnership related activities have been assigned owners to demonstrate how the partnership function (and wider agency) would engage and manage partner relationships in the future Partner organisations will be engaged and managed through collaborative working across agency teams The RACI below shows the proposed approach to managing Integrated Adult Careers Service policy development across the functions of the agency that hold relationships with partner organisations High Level RACI Partnership Function – Translates Integrated Adult Careers Service policy into operational partnerships to deliver the work of the Integrated Adult Careers Service and contributes to the achievement of targets (including regional colleagues) Policy Team (BIS) – Develop policy based on ministerial commitments Policy Team (Skills Funding Agency) – Translates the BIS policy into the service / offer design External Marcomms – Delivers comms to external stakeholders and develops campaigns to promote the service Internal comms – Delivers comms to internal Skills Funding Agency members Operational Function – Implementation and ongoing management of the policy Description High Level Integrated Adult Careers Service RACI ActivityPartnership Function Policy Team (BIS) Policy Team (Agency) Ext Marcomms Int commsOperational Team Develop policyCARCIC Identify organisations (potential partners) relevant to the policy RCACCCI Engage organisationsRIACIC Agree focus of the partnership ARCCCCC Develop partnership agreement and SLAs ARIICIC Manage (and review) partnership ARIICIC 4 RACI key (R) Responsible – Performs the activity, responsible for action / implementation (A) Accountable – Ultimately accountable, including yes / no decision and the power of veto (C) Consulted – Must be consulted before a decision or action is taken (I) Informed – Must always be informed after a decision or action has been taken
