Hobart, Launceston, Cradle Coast

Note:

Unit delivery is subject to sufficient enrolment numbers.

Introduction

This unit will prepare you with the skills necessary to ensure organisational value for money through the procurement of goods and services. You will investigate procurement ethics, the basics of contracts, the process of developing quotation and tender documentation, evaluation and negotiation principles, the contract award process and procurement strategies for both public and private entities.

In conjunction with the discipline theory, this unit introduces learning through practice by exposing you to authentic learning experiences. These experiences are placed at the centre of learning and assessment, so you have the opportunity to develop the skills, knowledge and behaviours necessary to respond to industry, community and/or global needs.

You will be introduced to:

- a range of methods, tools, techniques and approaches to practice

- principles and perspectives such as values, ethics, empathy and leadership in real world scenarios

- reflection and deliberative thinking as a means of developing knowledge, skills, attitudes and aspirations

- ways of understanding problems and developing solutions through active inquiry.
