Competence Development

For Individuals

Newpoint supports the delivery of a unique approach to individual competence development and training, as well as to the award of the Advanced Qualifications.

In the delivery of Advanced Learning, Newpoint believes that competence can only be demonstrated by individuals in the 'real-world' and not in a false 'academic' environment. To this end Newpoint trains staff in the context of the development and implementation of 'real-time' sourcing strategies.

Newpoint also provides In-Company Training Workshops focused on the development and implementation of 'real-time' sourcing strategies for all phases of the strategic sourcing process - that is from sourcing strategy development; through supply market analysis and test; to negotiation and contract award; and finally , to post-contractual supplier and supply chain management.
