BMF launches Supplier Training Prospectus  

The BMF has published for the first time a dedicated BMF Supplier Training Prospectus detailing the full range of over 60 training courses available for this member group.  

The new BMF Supplier Training Prospectus covers training programmes in three key areas, Management & Leadership, Sales and Operations/Transport. It also includes a training Roadmap to highlight courses that work well together and charts various paths that will help an individual to progress through different stages of their career from apprenticeship to senior management.  

The new Prospectus features a number of specialist courses developed purely for supplier members including “Selling into Merchants”, “Developing a Sales Strategy” and “Supplier Negotiation”. Other new courses featured include “Quicker, Better Meetings”, “Key Account Management”, “Sales Coaching and Performance Management” and “How a House is Built”.  

Each course is clearly described, outlining the purpose and objectives as well as the staff who would benefit most from its content, and further development opportunities for those attending.  

Details of BMF Apprenticeship Plus, with options for both smaller companies and larger levy-paying organisations through the BMF’s Apprenticeship Training Agency or its Levy Management Service, are also contained in the Prospectus.  

Richard Ellithorne, BMF Membership Services Director said: “This is the first publication to group together all our training courses for Supplier members. Some BMF training courses are equally relevant to both supplier and merchant members and these have been included together with newly created courses specifically designed to meet the needs of building materials suppliers. Importantly, they are designed to be flexible in the way they can be delivered, with open courses that can be held at regional venues such as the growing number of BMF Regional Centres of Excellence, or delivered “in-company” as a truly bespoke service.”
