A huge thanks to the APA team who have been so supportive and have helped or Apprentice progress to where he is today. I cannot fault you as a training provider!

Lisa Middleton MCIPS Procurement Manager


I started studying at APA nearly 3 years ago and they have given me full support through completing my CIPS qualification and tailored learning to suit me.  I found both Anne and Ian (the tutors) very helpful and supportive, they were always available when I needed them and if I was unable to attend certain study sessions I could always contact them afterwards to gain the lessons learnt be it via email or over the phone. I would 100% recommend going to APA if you are looking to complete a CIPS qualification they gave me confidence to complete the course and achieve what I wanted.

I just wanted to drop you a quick email to thank you for all your support over the last couple of years. I’m sure my last minute unsolicited ‘stressed’ revision emails, although amusing retrospectively, were somewhat of an irritation at the time, yet you always found the time to help and provide guidance!  My MCIPS status would not have been achieved without the support of APA and for that I am truly very thankful.

Emily Brinley MCIPS, Deputy Programme Manager, UTC AEROSPACE SYSTEMS


I have very much enjoyed working with you and APA over the last few years - it has been interesting and rewarding and our sessions and learnings also often served as a welcome opportunity to consider our practices away from day-to-day business pressures.  It has been very useful to think about not only the subject of Procurement and Supply, but also wider business contexts and theories.
