What will I learn?

Who is it for?

This Melbourne MicroCert is tailored to those currently working in procurement, supply chain management, or for a not-for profit organisation or social enterprise that engages in procurement processes.

Relevance to your job and industry

This Melbourne MicroCert has been developed in close consultation with the government, corporate and not-for-profit organisations that are leading the way in social procurement practices in Australia.

Your learning is designed to match industry needs, and you'll gain practical insights into the social procurement process and the benefits it can bring, which can be immediately applied to your role and organisation.
