As part of our admission process we invite prospective students to speak with our Centre Managers or Admissions team. This gives us time to get to know and understand your training needs, and to make sure you are on the right level course.
Process for Assessing Learner Suitability
Entry level Confirmation – Delegates are requested to provide a CV or link to their LinkedIn profile to evidence their education and professional experience.
Interviews – Delegates are offered the opportunity to be interviewed either on the phone or in person.
Wherever possible, we try and interview delegates in person as this gives us the opportunity to discuss work experience and to explain the course requirements. Delegates who are unable to attend a face-to-face interview, can book a video call.
We provide information on CIPS so that delegates understand the entry requirement, assessment methods and the hours of study required to achieve the qualification.
Generally, all delegates working towards MCIPS status will need to start their studies at the Diploma in Procurement and Supply (level 4). However, there is a Management Entry Route for senior procurement practitioners with at least 5 years’ experience at a strategic level.
