Dynamic Purchasing System

The Dynamic Purchasing Scheme (DPS) is a way the Jobcentre procure work-focused activities that are targeted at their clients’ needs per district. PeoplePlus have been delivering these short but effective courses in the North West and Central England.

Courses are normally delivered in a Community Centre based near the local JCP and can last from one to six weeks. They are tailored made to each group, but broadly cover:

  • helping individuals to break down barriers that might be stopping them from working;
  • give individuals support which recognises their skills, attributes and assets help them progress towards employment;
  • confidence building
  • communication and teamwork skills out of a classroom environment
