Course Overview

The PSP50616 Diploma of Procurement & Contracting is open to all levels of government. The program structure is an innovative ‘integrated’ delivery model, which means that competencies and content relating to values, ethics, legislation, negotiations, research and analysis, communications, risk analysis and strategic sourcing and category management are blended through the procurement and contracting context. To aid learning, we deliver the program on a procurement life-cycle basis.

The qualification covers the competencies required for independent and self-directed work as a procurement and contract manager in the public sector.

In line with the Australian Qualification Framework, there are no pre-requisites (ie entry requirements) for this qualification. Naturally, program participants will benefit from previous studies, and relative work experience, especially in procurement and contracting and related fields such as law, economics, negotiations, etc.

Learning that people remember: We train adults using an approach that is fun and full of practical activities, workplace scenarios and topical case studies.

Group interaction and involvement underpins all MTS programs.
