If your career development goal for 2021 is to grow your knowledge in procurement, the resources on our training and skills development platform Hīkina can help.
We have a range of online learning you can complete and in-person workshops you can register to attend, to help improve your procurement skills.
Online learning modules for general procurement include demystifying procurement, debriefing suppliers and early market engagement. You can also find Te Whānau Manaaki suite of modules on contract management and building cultural competency for procurement in the social services section on Hīkina. Te Whānau Manaaki suite of modules is aimed at staff procuring social services but also has relevance to general procurement.
If you are interested in understanding what broader outcomes are and the concept of public value, we have short online modules on these priority outcomes for Government too.
All the online modules are self-paced and there is no cost to complete them. There are short quizzes and interactive videos in each module to help reinforce your learning along the way.
We will also be releasing other content on Hīkina this year that will help you build on your procurement knowledge.
