10 years on from our beginnings we remain absolutely passionate about the transformative effect studying for CIPS can have for an individual and on the entire workplace. In the decade we’ve been in the learning space we have been consistently rated by CIPS as one of their top performing study centres. And, frankly, we’ve never been more excited about the potential a small, personal and friendly specialist CIPS provider can play in the development of today’s procurement teams.
Why not take a test drive
We run free weekly ‘test drive’ sessions where you can take part in a class, view our materials and meet with other people on the course and with one of our tutors. We can also give you free access for a week to our (CIPS rated excellent!) pass kit material. If you get in touch we’ll send you a link to join the class.
Study for CIPS at no cost
The 2020 CIPS /Hays Procurement salary survey showed those in the profession with CIPS qualifications earned 17% more than those who didn’t. The survey also showed 69% of jobs advertised in procurement required CIPS qualifications. You can become CIPS qualified at no cost if you use your employer’s apprenticeship levy to fund your study with us!
