Adding Social Value – How Procurement Can Create Benefits for Society

At Value Match we embed social value at the core of what we do. Our 60-minute course provides a fresh and innovative perspective on how procurement can create wider benefits for society and move to a net zero economy. The course is designed for procurement / bid professionals and broader stakeholders.

Notably, since January 1st, 2021, the UK central government has adopted a new Social Value Model. All organisations looking to procure and bid into central government are required to include Social Value requirements with a minimum of 10% of the total award criteria used to determine the successful bidder. Our courses are CPD meaning the learning activity has reached the required Continuing Professional Development standards and benchmarks. The learning value has been scrutinised to ensure integrity and quality. The CPD Certification Service provides recognised independent CPD accreditation compatible with global CPD requirements ensuring any learner can record their hours in contribution to their continued professional development.

This course is CPD (Continuing Professional Development) certified.
