The skills hub is a joint venture with the Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply (CIPS), the Institute for Collaborative Working (ICW) and King’s College London.
A construction skills hub has been launched at the multi-award-winning Supply Chain Sustainability School to improve the quality of procurement practices in the construction sector.
The sector has not increased productivity for over forty years and procurement practices are viewed as a major blocker for innovation and improved performance.
Professor David Mosey, Centre for Construction Law at The Dickson Poon School of Law, said, “Industry training on collaborative procurement is long overdue and a practical understanding of collaborative relationships, tools and systems is essential to help us resolve age-old problems and to improve efficiency, value and risk management.”
A newly created programme will demonstrate the value of good procurement to the built environment sector, providing free self-assessment, e-learning modules, an innovative cloud-based performance tool and a library of best practice procurement resources.
King’s College London Centre of Construction Law have been glad to support and develop modules, workshops and online tools on collaborative construction procurement– Professor David Mosey
The Supply Chain Sustainability School provides a wide range of free resource for businesses at all stages of their procurement journey, including Procurement for Beginners, Procurement for Professionals, Supplier Relationship & Management, and Collaborative Construction Procurement.
