Key features:

  • Course schedule is developed by participant and LHTS.
  • The program is on a basic level. Basic level is for those who are new to the Procurement area or have been working within a single role within procurement and want to understand the different roles, and its processes, in more depth. You learn the language of Procurement.
  • The program is based on LHTS eLearning courses combined with experienced senior program management which run regular sessions to congest the knowledge presented and discuss how to convert theory into practice.
  • The program is part-time (approx 10-20% of FTE), distance- and web based. Elearnings are available anytime and meetings with program management are e-meetings. You can, during the program, contact your mentor for advice via chat, mail or e-meeting.
  • Each course has a quiz and a course completion certificate. At the end of the program each participant's knowledge is verified via a written and a verbal test. All activities need to be completed to receive the program certificate.

The concept is very strong and, if the participant has the time and energy to absorb the new knowledge, you will get high value in return. It is however important that the participants are given time in busy calendars to focus on the training, but also that the participants really use the opportunity to learn.
