Please see below what some of our past students have to say about us:

I commenced my CIPS level 6 studies with APA, having completed Levels 4 and 5 at a different training centre. I’ve enjoyed the teaching style, which utilises a range of media (handouts, video etc) and is very interactive and engaging. The tutor is fantastic at focusing on the key areas of the textbook and summarizing or describing the models in a clear way. Topics are related back to procurement and supply and examples are given or discussed through as group, both of which are key when it comes to the exams. In addition, communication with the centre from my initial enquiry has been great which has made the process of registering simple and straight forward.

I want to thank you, Anne and Alan for your amazing help and guidance over the past three years as I would never have achieved this without your support. I have thoroughly enjoyed the courses and have already been able to apply a great deal to my role. I am sure that this will continue into the future.

I want to thank you for all your help over the last year. Not only have you supported me through the diploma and I have learnt so much but you have really supported me through such a tough but rewarding time in my career. The fact that I could come to college on Wednesday and gain further understanding and direction has been a great benefit, I really appreciate it.

Amy Wallen, Facilities Contracts and Procurement Manager, Wiltshire College


I really enjoy coming to class on Wednesday’s, I must drive everyone mad on Thursday as I’m like a bouncy bunny talking about what I’ve learnt! They must feel like they do the course with me.  It’s such a nice group of people and everyone adds lots of value.

For all your help, advice, persistence, teaching, patience and time in getting me through both level 3 & 4. I really do appreciate it and I hope that my results reflect the amount of time that you devoted to my cause!!! It was really great being taught by you and I’m sure you’ll hear how I get on with the rest of the levels.

Thank you.
