CIPS Level 2 Certificate

Is it right for me?

This level 2 qualification is ideal if you’re just starting your career in procurement or if procurement and supply are part of your role.. You don’t need any prior experience or qualifications to start your studies at this stage. Successful completion of the CIPS Level 2 Certificate provides a route for progression on to the CIPS Level 3 Advanced Certificate, the CIPS Level 4 Diploma, the CIPS Level 5 Advanced Diploma and finally the CIPS Level 6 Professional Diploma. It’s what businesses and employers are looking for.

What will I learn?

The CIPS Level 2 Certificate will enable you to recognise and describe the key processes in procurement and build your professional knowledge and competence.
