CIPS Corporate Academy Case Study

Develop essential procurement skills and knowledge with a CIPS Academy - customised training programme for large-scale procurement and supply teams.

CIPS Academies are tailormade to focus on learning that is directly relevant to your organisation, creating consistency in skills and capability, and an ethos of continuous improvement and development. Academies also support you to reduce supply chain risk and deliver service improvements, measurable cost benefits and return on investment.


We work closely with you to understand your global procurement and supply chain people development needs, carrying out a thorough assessment of your practitioners in their roles. We then create specific, tailored learning programmes designed to fit the skills levels you need your staff to achieve, no matter where in the world they are based.
