SURVEY: Procurement Training

How can procurement training be improved across Australia?

PwC’s Skills for Australia is working on behalf of, and engaged by the Federal Department of Education and Training to put employers at the centre of Australia’s qualification and training system, and we are currently seeing feedback on training and skills across Australia for the procurement profession.

We want to hear directly from employers about the types of skills that are required, and the job activities people are performing day-to-day in procurement roles.

It is critically important to gather as much employer and business/corporate feedback as possible in order to impact on future education and training, and ultimately help build the procurement profession in Australia.

How you can help:

  1. Complete the 5 minute Procurement Training Survey, which asks questions like, “What skills and experience do you look for when hiring external people to fill procurement roles?”.
    Your input will be directly used to:

    • Help increase the awareness of procurement as a profession in Australia, and

    • Develop a standard of procurement skills and training in Australia across a range of levels, from junior procurement roles to Chief Procurement Officer, within organisations.

  2. Share this survey with your procurement contacts in your organisation and in your networks, and ask them to contribute to this important consultation to help strengthen procurement training and build the profession in Australia.
