11/02/2020 - South Yorkshire Teaching Partnership Contract with the University of Sheffield Management School ref: 2456    Recommendations Approved

The current contract with the University of Sheffield for the provision of postgraduate certificates in leadership and management for social work expired in September 2019. The report recommends the recommissioning of that contract for a minimum of 12 students per year across the South Yorkshire Teaching Partnership for a four year period, ensuring that the Council and its partner local authorities continue to benefit from a greatly reduced price.  Sheffield City Council, as the lead authority, will act on behalf of the South Yorkshire Teaching Partnership and will recharge each local authority, so there is limited financial risk.
