Upcoming supply chain school events in 2020
February 3, 2020

One way we are supporting local businesses, particularly SMEs, is through our partnership with the Supply Chain School.

The Supply Chain School can help upskill your business, putting you in the best position to tender for work on the project – skills that will assist in other areas as well. This will help your business grow and leaves a legacy of a more capable, dynamic and sustainable supply chain. It also helps us keep more of the investment from the project within the local economy.

You can register your business for the school and take modules on topics that will provide a firm basis for working on a major piece of infrastructure. We will also offer workshops, run periodically with a focus on supply chain gaps and areas that may require particular attention (tendering; certification to get onto projects etc).

Register for the Supply Chain School and start developing your business’ capabilities at Supply Chain Sustainability School.

We have run two introductory events – and are running three more (register below) – to introduce local businesses to the school and to learn where support may be most needed.
