Training Approver or Manager Details
- Approval and Support of my Manager
I have discussed the requirement of this qualification to be directly and personally involved in practical procurement activity at work (as described above) with my manager who is named above.
He/ she has agreed to support me through this qualification by providing opportunities for me to develop and demonstrate my skills in practical procurement planning, developing RFT documents, processing and evaluating tenders.
- Assessment requirements
Assessment will be a combination of:
  • Six practical procurement training modules (including the Clever Buying two-day training course)
  • Responses to written and/or verbal feedback from my Assessor
  • Professional Discussions (assessment interviews via video)
- Involvement in Procurement Activity
Completion of the qualification requires me to be personally involved in practical procurement activity (procurement planning, developing RFx documents, processing and evaluating tenders)
- Proactive communication
I will notify my assessor proactively if there is any reason that may limit my ability to progress my assignment work. I will respond promptly to communications (including follow-up, written feedback and assignment tasks) from my assessor.
- Self management of my study programme

I accept that I may need to invest up to one day outside business hours every three months in order to remain suitable for this qualification.
