The Treasury has contracts with various external training providers to deliver the Treasury's Development Programme. The companies used are as follows:

Accountancy Tuition Centre

Angel Scott Associates

Birkbeck College

CMPS

London School of Economics

Parity Training

Sunley Management Centre

Trainers at Work

All contracts with external suppliers are procured on a competitive basis, initially for two years but with the option to extend the contract to a maximum of five years. The provision of centrally managed training means that training is delivered on cost effective terms and can be regularly monitored to ensure that it continues to meet the Treasury's needs.
