Education and Training

Empower has successfully conducted several training programmes in Procurement and Supply Chain Management for several years running. Empower has provided education and training to a wide variety of professionals and organizations including UN staff, non-governmental organizations as well as government agencies.

Training sessions are tailored to each organization and the levels of education and experience of the professionals attending trainings. Intensive programmes are also available for participants seeking a more comprehensive understanding in a particular area of expertise.

 

Empower offers specialized trainings in the following fields:

  • Procurement and Supply Chain Management;
  • Quality Assurance of Health Commodities; and
  • Good Manufacturing Practices in Production of Medicines.

Uniqueness of our programmes:

  • Teaching and Learning Methods – e-learning, lectures, field visits, interactive classroom discussions, group work and case studies.
  • Course evaluation and feedback - Students evaluate the programme at the end of the training and Empower incorporates suggestions to maximize participant satisfaction.
  • Tailor-made Procurement Training Courses- Training courses are delivered at preferred locations and times, on a cost recovery basis. This is often the most cost-efficient way to train a larger group of staff/counterparts. Tailor-made courses can contain modules from any of our standard courses and/or feature completely new developed modules addressing specific requirements, challenges and opportunities facing your organization.
  •  Assessments - Pre and post-training assessment tests are conducted to evaluate students learning and retention.
  • Expert instructors – Trainings are led by senior instructors who are subject matter experts in their field and have extensive instructional experience.
