Last year saw the successful delivery of our Learning and Development pilot programme which explored Procurement, Leadership and Project Management themes in partnership with industry leaders Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply (CIPS), Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and Association of Project Management (APM). This was in conjunction with the forthcoming publication of the Scottish Government's Procurement and Commercial Training Frameworks which contribute to our new model.

In this exciting environment the sector’s educational model is evolving to respond to the developing needs of our customers. Scotland Excel is leading the way with a responsive approach informed through the recent delivery of the Procurement & Commercial Improvement Programme.
