New Procurement Apprenticeship

Procurement Apprenticeship

It’s all systems go this summer at The Apprentice Academy as our Future Talent programme is in full swing with nearly 80 16-18 year olds already placed to start their Apprenticeships with us. However there’s something else getting us very excited about the back half of 2018 and thats our new Procurement Apprenticeship.

Starting in September 2018 our Commercial Procurement and Supply Apprenticeship is aimed at giving employees already working in a procurement or a purchasing function valuable qualifications to reinforce their preexisting skills and knowledge. Having been designed by employers as part of the new range of Apprenticeship Standards, the qualification intends to give organisations a competitive advantage and drive business performance.

Procurement ApprenticeshipAnother key feature to the Procurement Apprenticeship is the inclusion of the Level 4 Diploma with the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS). Upon completion of the Apprenticeship learners can then progress through CIPS Level 5 and 6 to full MCIPS and gain Chartered Procurement Professional status.

The programme is designed and structured to ensure employees become fully qualified and competent procurement professionals, who can deliver optimum supply chain solutions for your business. Becoming more confident with their abilities is crucial as they progress further through the Procurement Apprenticeship, resulting in the ability to approach new situations outside of their comfort zones. This new confidence helps them to increase their performance and boost productivity for the organisation.

This 18 month Apprenticeship includes 15 workshops delivered by industry professionals who will share their skills, knowledge and experience to help the learner grow and develop. Also included is one-to-one coaching as well as peer to peer learning with other professionals on the programme.

Employers paying the Apprenticeship Levy can use their funds to pay for apprenticeship training while generous funding is available to non-levy organisations.
