Professional Development

Why train with the GSA-UK?

The Global Sourcing Association UK is committed to developing the professional reputation of the sourcing industry.  That starts with ensuring all sourcing professionals have the opportunity to develop the right skills, behaviours and knowledge to do the job. Professional development in sourcing is central to all of the GSA-UK's work. Our professional development programme is based around training on core sourcing skills and understanding, unique sourcing profession qualifications and along with generic business skills required by the sourcing professional.

GSA-UK's training programme offers a wide range of training courses accommodating all levels of experience for outsourcing professionals and with formats to suit all requirements, including online/distance learning, open workshops, in-house training programmes and executive masterclasses. We are proud to have world class trainers deliver our programmes.

GSA-UK’s qualifications include the industry’s first Foundation certificate, professional certificate, and diploma in strategic sourcing. Portsmouth University accredits the GSA-UK Diploma programmes through its Institute for Work Based Learning. The Institute for Work Based Learning pioneered the development of work-based learning at higher education level and is an internationally recognised centre for excellence.
