APA Procurement Training provides CIPS qualifications at five levels of study, from Certificate level to Professional Diploma. Whatever level of study you choose, CIPS qualifications are widely recognised by employers as a mark of your procurement knowledge and expertise. It is becoming an increasing recruitment requirement that you are CIPS qualified, or working towards MCIPS.
MCIPS is the gold standard qualification in procurement and supply management - the internationally recognised accreditation of excellence in the profession. Once you have achieved MCIPS, you will be able to operate, and be seen to operate, with all the professional tools and practices you need to excel in your field.
Continuing professional development is key to personal and organisational competitiveness. Our short courses focus on developing expertise in key areas of procurement and supply chain activity, including negotiation, contracting, supplier management, and understanding organisation spend.
The apprenticeship framework is designed for both new and existing employees at different levels who want to develop their knowledge and skills and also who need the capabilities to carry out important tasks, such as organising supply logistics, managing contracts and sourcing materials and services. We deliver Apprenticeship programmes at level 4, alongside functional competency skills such as mathematics, English and ICT.
