Courses & Education

Numbers are the language of business. This course is aimed at improving contract professionals’ knowledge of how the numbers work in a business setting and how they can affect an organisation.

This course informs business and government about contracts, delivering critical legal knowledge for anyone who has any exposure to contracts of whatever size, value and type. During the one day intensive program you will examine the law and commercial factors affecting the contract lifecycle, from formation, through performance to completion.

In this course we look at the best ways to negotiate a successful outcome to internal or external negotiations. Remember that if a contract can be defined as a legally enforceable voluntary agreement between two or more parties then the negotiation is the process that leads up to the creation of the contract.

The new Australian Curriculum prioritises the teaching of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives as one of three major cross-curricular themes.
