Ways to train with the GSA

In-house

Whether you are looking for a one-off executive masterclass on the strategic implications of outsourcing, a year-long programme of professional development for your sourcing professionals or to accredit your own in-house programmes to GSA qualifications, the GSA can develop a program bespoke to you and deliver it at your offices.

Please contact Chris Halward directly: chrish@gsa-uk.com

Distance Learning

The GSA offers a library of video content covering the end-to-end sourcing lifecycle. Videos can be consumed individually or as the full series, depending on your requirements. Each video has a question set included and completion of all videos and question sets results in the student being awarded the GSA Gateway. Our Gateway course has been designed to provide underpinning knowledge of the basic principles of strategic sourcing.

Qualifications can also be completed in the form of distance learning, allowing overseas students and those who prefer the distance learning format to learn in an easy, accessible way. It’s all done online - so you don’t have to worry about travelling to workshops or posting submissions.

Materials and workbooks are provided for all students. Students are also supported by remote access to tutors – online and on the phone, and through the feedback provided on submitted papers.

Online Seminars

All our sourcing seminars can be taken individually or as a full series. You can book on one and then extend it to take one more or even all of them.
