SPS Ltd has been commissioned by WSCC as their Strategic Delivery Partner, to support their ambitious 'Children First' Transformation Programme and their journey of improvement. SPS carried out a full service review of the Fostering and Kinship Service, which lead to the approval of the business case by Cabinet and a holistic transformation of the service. SPS also lead on the implementation of a new practice model, Family Safeguarding and more recently founded the transformation across Education and Learning, focusing on the transformation of services to children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).
"We asked SPS Consulting to provide some support and focus to our leadership transformation activity. The team listened to our requirements and engaged with the whole team before proposing a set of activities that were bespoke to our needs. The work undertaken with SPS was of the highest quality and met all the requirements we set out for them. Importantly they ensured we developed the tools and processes to take the work forward and it provided the springboard we needed to develop our children first approach."

Following an Ofsted Inspection in 2011, Torbay commissioned our services to design and implement an improvement programme that took them on a journey from an inadequate rating to Adequate, over a 2 year period. The programme, branded CPIP, was highly commended by Ofsted and DfE during the 2013 inspection and throughout their inspection report.
The client approached us following a poor Ofsted inspection in 2013. SPS Ltd were commissioned to set up a sustainable ‘Improvement’ programme across Education and Social Care. SPS partnered delivery of this programme, which helped the local authority come ‘out of intervention’ and rated as ‘requires improvement’ at the follow up Ofsted inspection in 2014.
