Staffline, the Recruitment and Training group, is pleased to announce that its PeoplePlus division has been selected as a provider on the Department for Work and Pensions’ (DWP) Commercial Agreement for the Provision of Employment and Health Related Services (CAEHRS) framework.    

CAEHRS replaces the DWP’s existing Umbrella Agreement which expires in 2021. It will become the default framework for contracting employability and health related programmes.  CAEHRS will run for 5 years (2020-2025) with a potential contract value of £7.5bn.

This UK-wide commercial agreement is organised into a national Lot and seven regional Lots split across two tiers. Tier 1 covers the commissioning of services with a value over £11 million in England and £6 million in Scotland and Wales. Tier 2 covers the commissioning of services with a value between £2 million and £11 million in England and £2 million to £6 million in Scotland and Wales.   

PeoplePlus has been successful in securing a place on the national Lot and has been selected as a Tier 1 provider in all 6 regions across England and Scotland and as a Tier 2 provider in Wales.  

PeoplePlus is the UK’s leading provider of employability, adult skills and prison education services. It is dedicated to transforming lives by supporting people into sustainable employment and helping them develop their careers. 

Ian Lawson, Executive Chairman of Staffline, commented:

“We are delighted that PeoplePlus’ services are represented so widely across the CAEHRS framework and look forward to working with the Department and our network of employer partners to support the many millions of workers displaced by the Covid-19 virus to return to employment.”
