Standalone Training Modules


Linking Practical Approaches to Business Development Using Applied Principles

We have developed a range of standalone training and development modules. These are based on Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS) student study guides and suggested core reading texts used to enable individuals to achieve membership of CIPS through the examination and Corporate Award routes. CIPS, is the largest procurement community in the world.

However, it is recognised that businesses and government bodies may not wish to follow this route initially, but do wish to support good procurement practice within their organizations by focussing on specific elements where weaknesses or opportunities have been identified. To fulfil this need, standalone training modules are available using the principles found in the CIPS training material coupled with a practical element to enable organizations to transform their investment into real added value and tangible returns.

The independent modules are not a substitute for the more integrated approach used to help candidates achieve MCIPS status, but do provide a foundation on which an organization may want to build the capabilty of personnel. In a developmental programme, our involvement with an organization may lead to greater customisation of the standard award material to ensure the organization can continue to maximise benefits in terms of return on investment.

Course Levels

We design our courses to cater for the development of personnel at a low to medium level and medium to high level. In this way we can ensure that the principles at a strategic level are outlined in an appropriate level of detail for senior managers to create the practical environment and change objectives for improvement actions to be considered and developed. Additionally, the main elements of the higher level courses are broken down to enable those responsible for day-to-day operations and activities to fully and clearly understand the principles and importance of what they learn and how they will contribute to the overall success of the business.
