Solvint Procurement Academy is a division of Solvint Supply Management and was founded in 2003. Since then, Solvint Procurement Academy has trained over 15,000 professionals and has become the preferred leader for in-house procurement training courses. Our courses are given by experienced procurement professionals who have worked for multinationals or large national companies. We believe that if you train a team the right way, they can outperform themselves, which is why we created our own education program where we teach teams to help each other out and outperform themselves within the field of procurement.
With branches in Zürich, Antwerp, Amsterdam and Paris, Solvint Procurement Academy has developed a wide range of training courses to meet the wishes and demands of its large client base spread over 16 different industries within the whole EMEA region.
Our Key Figures
Education and training are not the end goal; they are a means of helping employees develop as individuals and as team members, but also as people and professionals. Our training courses must therefore be seen as only one component of the learning and development cycle, not as the whole cycle itself.
The learning and development cycle consists of:
Traditional ‘generic’ training courses do not take into account that each company is different. They can be active in different industries and markets and can have a fundamentally different culture and knowledge level. Therefore, Solvint Procurement Academy, has developed an in-house training programme which enables you to integrate your own company’s methodology, culture and own contribution to the training.
Depending on your needs, you can choose between our general training modules, our specific in-depth training courses or a combination of both.
Depending on where you want the course, Solvint Procurement Academy is available for in-house trainings at your site or at any other venue of your choice within the whole EMEA region.
Our approach consists of 3-stages:
Solvint Procurement Academy’s seminars, training courses and workshops are always structured in a practical and pragmatic way. They include a lot of practical activities and are given by experienced and energetic trainers, who are at the top in their professional field.
Their practical experience ensures that ‘theoretical’ concepts can be translated into ‘applicable’ knowledge. To give your training course extra strength Solvint Procurement Academy, in addition to its own experienced trainers, can always invite academics, guest speakers and guest lecturers from its own network.
Our international mobility, multilingual capabilities and the cultural sensitivity of our trainers make Solvint Procurement Academy an ideal partner for providing top-quality assistance for your company within the EMEA region.
