LUPC and HEPA E-Learning Packages Available to NWUPC Members

NWUPC members are now able to access the new eLearning suite on Protecting Human Rights in the Supply Chain – this is specifically for public procurement practitioners, developed by London Universities Purchasing Consortium (LUPC) in collaboration with APUC and the University of Greenwich.


Participants will learn why protecting human rights in the supply chain is important to the public sector, how to assess and prioritise risks, monitor supply chains, respond to abuses and measure and report effectiveness. There’s also a module on compiling an annual Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement under the Modern Slavery Act. The suite was written by Dr Olga Martin-Ortega, Reader in Public International Law and leader of the Business, Human Rights and Environment Research Group at the University of Greenwich and LUPC Director, Andy Davies FCIPS. The University of Greenwich and APUC co-funded the project.
