SC21: Partners and Practitioners

BACKGROUND

Within the SC21 Project Team we recognise that the provision of high quality training and support is a key enabler to the successful implementation of the improvement journey.

As part of ensuring that quality training is provided the Performance, Development and Quality SIG oversees the approval of practitioners and partners. Currently we have approved a number of both independent training companies and individuals from Primes to deliver SC21 training.

A brief summary of the differences between a strategic partner, training partner and practitioners are listed below:

  • SC21 Strategic Partner. Sufficient expertise and resources to deliver full awareness of the SC21 Programme (Quality Accreditation, Development and Performance & Relationship) including diagnostics and action plan
  • SC21 Training Partner. A Subject Matter Expert with resources to deliver Specialist Training, Coaching & Mentoring in a specific discipline. A Training Partner is not able to deliver whole programme, but maybe part, or specialist approved training as part of improvement
  • SC21 Practitioner. Expertise in Business Excellence (BusEx) , Manufacturing Excellence (ManEx) and Relationship Excellence (RelEx) providing independent assessments to recognised SC21 standards, can support but not lead assessment
  • SC21 Lead Practitioner. Expertise in Business Excellence (BusEx), Manufacturing Excellence (ManEx) and Relationship Excellence (RelEx) providing independent assessments to recognised  SC21 standards, leads assessment
  • SC21 Master Practitioner. An individual who has the necessary skills knowledge and experience to train, coach and mentor an individual to become a Practitioner
