Learning objectives

By the end of the programme participants will be able to:

  • Understand the range of forms available
  • Choose the appropriate form
  • Use them appropriately
  • Adapt forms for specific projects
  • Use Z clauses
  • Understand how the standard contract forms work with other contractual documents
Who should attend?

This course is designed for those who have become involved in contracting for minor and major projects and want to understand the use and benefits of standard forms of contract. It is an invaluable programme for all project managers and procurement and technical professionals who are not fully familiar with the NEC documents.

Course format

The expert trainer for this practical one-day programme adopts a proactive, participative, and participant-centred approach with emphasis on the practical application of the tools, techniques and templates discussed.

Special feature

The majority of the training we deliver is either tailored or completely bespoke. This workshop can therefore be delivered entirely as advertised, or it can be tailored to your particular requirements, or we can simply take it as a starting point for a conversation with you before we draft a completely bespoke programme for you – the choice is yours.

Expert trainer

John has more than twenty years’ experience in facilities management in a variety of roles – employed, as a consultant and as a very popular trainer. His FM career began with the Post Office and Parcelforce, where he was responsible for FM services at 30 sites around the country. This led him to a specialist interest in soft FM service and he took up a consultancy role working for a number of clients in the retail, financial and government sectors initially and subsequently across all sectors. A former non-executive director of the British Institute of Facilities Management (and chair of their Procurement Special Interest Group), John is a popular conference speaker as well as an experienced trainer.
