Thank you for reporting this item.
HEPA has developed a series of online learning courses, specifically aimed at procurement. These courses are a great, cost effective way to develop the skills of a central procurement team and staff who are not part of the central team, but who have procurement in their role.
The 6 courses are:
To find out more about each one and see some sample images, visit the Course Outlines page.
The first course, Introduction to HE Procurement is FREE to all HEPA members. You have the choice of buying any number of the 5 remaining courses, or you can buy them all - if you do buy them all, there is a discounted price, meaning that you get all 6 courses for the price of 4 (£640). Each individual course costs £160. When you sign up, you get a 12 month renewable licence for your institution.
This is an institution licence – so once you have signed up, you can give the details to any member of staff who is interested in procurement, so that they can use this great resource.
There is a list at the bottom of this page of all the institutions who have purchased the e-learning licences. If your institution is listed, then please contact your Head of Procurement to obtain the enrolment keys you need. Then move onto the section below called 'Already have your enrolment keys.'
To buy one or more modules, click here. Once your order has been processed, you will be sent your enrolment keys and a digital welcome pack.
It works the same way as the other modules, so you will need an enrolment key. Either contact your Head of Procurement if your institution has a licence, or you can use your HEPA website account to get the enrolment key (so that we can be sure it is only being used by members). If you are not a member click on the REGISTER link at the top right hand corner of this page. Once/if you are a member, click here to get the enrolment key. Then move onto the section below.
There are two different ways to logon, depending on the module you are trying to access:
This module uses a different platform to the other 5 modules. There is no need for an enrolment key, just your HEPA website account. If your institution has purchased the Sustainability module, then you will be able to access the module using button below.
1. When you have the enrolment keys (which are provided by your central procurement team), you can click on the e-learning button below which will take you to the e-learning site. Follow the instructions on the right hand side of the screen which will help you set up your individual account.
2. Once you have set up your account, you will see the list of available courses. Click on the course that you wish to follow and you will be asked to enter the enrolment key for that course. Once you have done that, you can use the resource as often as you like during the period of the subscription.
Please note: we have recently changed the enrolment keys for the modules as part of the licence renewal process. If your enrolment key does not work, then please contact your central procurement team to obtain the new key. If they do not have the new key, then it is possible that they have not renewed. In this case, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to renew.
