NEUPC CIPS Study Centre

NEUPC recognises that employing suitably qualified procurement staff is vital for our universities to deliver efficiencies and value for money, but a skills shortage in the profession means a some institutions find filling these positions a challenge.

Since September 2016 we have offered the opportunity to study for CIPS qualifications through our study centre, and from September 2017 we will be offering levels 3, 4 and 5, along with a new study option of day attendance.

What are the benefits to CIPS Study?

CIPS is a globally recognised qualification that can boost career opportunities and demonstrates to employers your commitment to being a better procurement professional. You study across a range of procurement and supply topics which will help your career whichever direction you choose.

Contextualised Learning

Through the NEUPC Study Centre, we contextualise your learning to the HE Sector. Whilst the CIPS materials focus on traditional supply environments, we want to ensure that you learn how theory and recognised best practice can apply in the real workplace.
