Contracts and Procurement Training

Formed 20 years ago to provide Contracting and Procurement training on an outsourced basis to Shell Group companies the CP Training Consortium has now merged with the Supply Chain Academy.

As the short course delivery arm of the Supply Chain Academy the CP Training Consortium will extend its offering of courses to cover all aspects of supply chain management, from design through disposal and all stages in between. The Supply Chain Academy will deliver supply chain thought leadership and strategic management training for senior executives.

CP Training Consortium range of supply chain subjects covered has been extended dramatically in recent years in response to demand. Our client base now includes organisations from a wide range of industrial sectors, such as telecommunications, cement and utilities, retail as well as a broad cross section of the oil, gas and energy sector.

In some cases our courses are regarded as stand-alone programmes, in others as complementing the client's own training programme. In most instances in-house training programmes are part of the client’s localisation programme. We have in-depth experience and deep commitment to localisation, sustainability and CSR as the only way businesses can succeed in the longer term.

We deliver Public training courses in central London and other venues in the UK. Most of the courses in the public programme are available for in-house delivery by arrangement. Participants on our public courses come from all over the world and we deliver in-house programmes virtually anywhere worldwide.

CP Training Services Ltd has a wide ranging network of contacts in the supply chain training and consultancy world, and so is well placed to deliver specialist training and consultancy services for its clients.

Our training staff of independent consultants are all experienced practitioners of their subjects as well as being expert trainers.

Subject areas covered fall into the following categories:

  • Supply Chain Management training
  • Contracting and Procurement courses
  • Transport and Logistics courses
  • HR Practitioner Staff Development
  • Management and Leadership Development
  • Personal Skills Development
  • Training, Coaching and Staff Development skills
  • Environmental and Waste Management
  • Institute of Supply Chain Management qualifications.

Our customer base is largely based in the energy sector and our public courses tend to have a degree of focus upon oil, gas and energy sector business. Our in-house programmes can be tailored to a greater or lesser extent to meet client specialist requirements in terms of addressing skills needs as well as putting the learning into the local context.

CP Training Consortium is an approved provider of training for the Institute of Supply Chain Management.
