Throughout the world CIPS qualifications are recognised as driving leading edge thinking and professionalism in procurement. MCIPS is recognised worldwide as the global standard for top quality procurement professionals.
The CIPS programme has five levels, the higher levels are most suitable for professional procurement staff. The lower levels provide an excellent base knowledge for further study but can also be beneficial for staff who have involvement with any stage of the purchasing process or stock control.
The Finance Training team are currently supporting a number of staff on professional procurement courses with CIPS.
Level 4 is being taught by an external provider this year and we are reviewing the viability of running an introduction Level 2 course in-house next year.
