Skills and Training


The Knowledge Academy Contract Management Training 2 day course covers the following topics:


Contracts are an important part of the operations of commercial businesses, public sector organisations and government.

This 2-day course is designed to teach essential skills and understanding in the areas of contract law and contracting management and procurement. The relationship between a business and its suppliers can be fundamental to the achieving of its objectives, but it can also be full of risk. In this course delegates will be learning the importance of procurement contracts, how to cut through the legal language that often underpins the contracting process, and will ultimately understand how to handle procurement contracts in such a way as to minimise risk and deliver maximum value from the procurement of goods and services.



There are no formal prerequisites for this course, and no particular skills are needed. Some familiarity with the contracting process will be useful, but is not necessary.


Who Should Attend?

The course is designed for anybody involved or interested in the management of procurement contracts and learning the skills required to navigate the contracting process correctly. It will also help those looking to improve their relationships with those they are contracting with. It will be particularly useful for those dealing with contracts in their day to day job, whether that is in the public or private sector.

What is Contract Management?

Contract management concerns the administration of contracts between companies and their vendors in order to derive maximum advantage from them and reduce financial risk. Contract management starts from drafting the contract at the beginning through to the tracking of the contract throughout the contract period to ensure each party’s obligations are fulfilled and each risk is minimised. Successful contract management can result in the development of closer relationships with suppliers, resulting in increased value from the contract and increased benefits to the business, as they know how to procure the best contracts and how best to carry out the contracting process.
