PASA provides a range of activities, resources or services to enable procurement practitioners to build their skills, knowledge and capability. Traditionally through PASA these have primarily been via the PASA Connect peer-to-peer seminars and round-tables and PASA Conferences. Both of these, in their different but complementary ways, provide excellent, practical, learning and networking opportunities.

To complement these activities, PASA now partners with specific leaders in their fields to provide learning & development programmes, tailored to meet the needs of the modern procurement professional through targeted training, short-courses and workshops . As a rule, PASA only provides training and development programmes where:

  • The course is offered at a premium or more advanced level
  • The subject matter is not readily available through other means
  • The offering addresses skills or capabilities vital to effective procurement in future

The courses 

Each course is delivered in a participative style – whether ONLINE or LIVE

Well-timed breaks, fun spots, breakout group discussions plus interactive exercises & activities also facilitate a more rewarding learning experience both LIVE and ONLINE. The online courses also often utilise ZOOM-consistent apps like MURAL to enable group work and hands-on learning.

The training programme has been scheduled to largely avoid public holidays and core school holiday times and courses are mainly arranged for mid-week slots. The ONLINE courses are mostly arranged to optimise learning retention through morning sessions and are usually timed to optimise the time-zone spread from Perth to Auckland and in between. Whilst not guaranteed, those courses only scheduled once or twice in the programme will be repeated if demand exists – so do not be shy to express your requirements. It is also possible to SAVE by arranging private in-company courses for your team, just contact  directly for a quotation.

 Your procurement L&D programme

Developing a comprehensive learning & development (L&D) programme for your procurement team can be a challenge with a growing list of professional requirements and diminishing resources – particularly the time and money to train effectively across a wide range of topics and needs.  PASA launched a major survey a year ago, which led to the production of a FREE white-paper which included delegate feedback on learning style preferences and better online approaches.

This white paper is FREE to download and can help guide you through the procurement L&D development process and navigate some frequent difficult questions – it will help you forge the right L&D programme for your procurement team or yourself.
