Training

Short Training Videos

Procurement have been developing short YouTube training videos to simple demonstrate to end users and requisitioners how to use core systems.  The list is as follows: 

Zoom training sessions

The Procurement Team regularly rolls out training to ensure all core systems users, to ensure all know how to raise Requisitions and are kept updated on any new procuredures or system updates which may affect the process.

We are currently running training sessions across the colleges and welcome additional participants, to any of these. 

Refresher Requisitioner Training

We recommend that all requisitioners attend one of these sessions annual.  For those who raise requisitions infrequently this can act as a refresher and a reminder. 

For more regular requisitioners; the refinments and updates to the processes are all included in this annual training and serve as a developing guide to how best to maintain accuracy and best practise.

Current training includes updates on Supply Chain, Tax and Overseas updates, HE Contracts, understanding receipting processes and how best to utilise the Management Pack.

The next Requisitioner Training sessions will take place: 

Please allow 90 minutes for each session and contact Joëlle O’Toole if you would like to sign up to.

Our last training session was for Campus Services on 27 October, the slides can be downloaded via this link.  The recording from this session is also available; using the passcode: !Sc+0Zrk

Receipting Training

It is important that receipting is done as soon as goods are delivered/services are completed.  Payment of suppliers relies upon this process being undertaken correctly.  

We encourage all requisitioners to attend one of these dedicated workshops; particularly those who are involved in research or ordering of medical suppliers, as it is these suppliers in particular that have had payment delays, due to receipting anomalies.  

The slides for the session on 17 November can be downloaded here and the recording can be accessed here.  Please use the passcode: xj8kL@vy

RBS Requisitioner Training

We will be running an RBS Requisitioner Training, for those who want to know everything about how to raise a requisition to be paid by Purchase Card.

The slides for the session run on 23 November are available and a recording of the session can be accessed here.  Please use passcode:  x%6L#?a$

Requisitioner User Group Sessions

These sessions provide bite sized updates and presentations from Procurement, the Buying Team and one or two of our suppliers.  They are a useful resource to help the requisitoner and end user to get the most from core systems and provide a great opportunity to raise more in-depth questions.

We run these sessions every four months and, as we tailor them towards those who use the system and what to get the most out of it, we welcome agenda suggestions.  

To join the workshop, you can click on the zoom link above, or contact Joëlle O’Toole for an invitation.  This session will include updates from Edgbaston Park Hotel, an introduction to Clarity travel booking portal and the new food booking portal.  A copy of the agenda can be viewed here.
