The Gateway to Procurement and Supply is an exclusive non assessed short course designed by the Oxford College of Procurement and Supply.
We find that many students ask for the wrong courses. For example, some people who already have purchasing experience ask for the lower level CIPS courses. They do not realise that they may be able to go straight on to the Diploma level after completing our Gateway to Procurement and Supply Procurement programme. This is a basic purchasing and supply course broadly covering the topics listed in Level 3. This foundation may enable delegates to enter studies at a higher level thus saving time and money! It will also enable students entering at a higher level with an overview of the lower level course.
The Gateway to Procurement and Supply covers the core content from the level 3 Advanced Certificate in Procurement and Supply to enable students going on at the level 4 Diploma in Procurement and Supply to prepare for their new course. The Gateway is free of charge to students who enrol and pay for the Diploma in Procurement and Supply course or another full course with the College.
