The programme is fully government-funded at least until December this year – and many students report that they are able to complete all of the assessment requirements within their everyday work activity as procurement professionals.

Meet our enthusiastic team of NZQA -Qualified Procurement Tutors and Assessors.

Check out some of the feedback received from these recent graduates…

Really pleased too to have completed the qualification. I’ve found it really great to build on some existing knowledge and learn some new tools.

I gained a lot and so has our procurement team. We are now running really effective and less subjective procurements. This is also reflected in the comments we here from our suppliers – both successful and un successful ones.

Thank you very much. 100% this qualification has boost my confidence and knowledge in procurement section and hope to utilize it everyday in my procurement. 

I found the feedback and tutoring to be quick and effective. I also had a lot of invaluable help with questions on my real life procurement.

This course was a watershed moment for our team and for me personally. It helped to give us the confidence to do the right thing in our procurement activities and understand better ways to work.  Personally, it opened up possibilities in terms of career development.

The method of coaching was excellent and very effective. The assessor had given really good feedback which made everything easier to understand. I found the feedback and guidance to be quick and effective. I also had a lot of invaluable help with questions on my real life procurement.

I found this course super interesting and very much appreciate the professionalism, and pragmatism provided by you both. All aspects of the course aligned well with the projects I’ve been working on. I will definitely recommended it to others.
