Commercial Procurement & Supply Apprenticeship – Reference Number: ST0313
Who is it for?
The Commercial Procurement and Supply apprenticeship is suitable for those in both junior and senior procurement positions. Upon completion, typical roles can extend to a huge range of related commercial activity such as influencing policy, financial analysis, engaging in contract law, and developing strategy to deliver services. Individuals will be able to position themselves as fully effective, commercially skilled professionals, with transferable skills and career options that span the public, private and charitable sectors. All of this training will be developed within the apprenticeship.
How is the Training Delivered and what can you expect?
Larger cohorts can have training delivered in-house, at a convenient time. For smaller cohorts, training will be delivered at one of 19 study centres throughout the UK. These study centres deliver classes at flexible times outside of work hours therefore not impacting on the day to day business. All apprentices will have access to a virtual learning environment www.oxcomlearning.com for extra reading, study and communication.
The apprenticeship will take approximately 18-21 months to complete during which time the apprentice will gather evidence that apprenticeship outcomes have been met. During this time, the apprentice will have regular meetings (every 6-8 weeks) with their mentor / assessor to check progress.
Embedded within the Commercial Procurement and Supply apprenticeship is the CIPS Level 4 Diploma in Procurement and Supply. As an accredited training provider, Oxford College of Procurement and Supply have worked closely with CIPS to deliver this professional qualification for a number of years. With this experience, trainers are able to offer a tailored programme to your organisation to maximise the value of the apprenticeship.
What will be covered?
As part of the apprenticeship, learners will be supported by the attainment of a Level 4 Diploma with the Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply (CIPS).
