ABA Procurement offer Level 4 Procurement and Supply Apprenticeships, in collaboration with our partners to provide a one stop shop for procurement apprentices.
The Apprenticeship Levy
It has been recognised that there is a vast skills shortage in the Supply Chain and only by investing and upskilling procurement professionals will growth be facilitated.
As a result, the Apprentice levy can now be used to train new and existing procurement professionals via the Commercial Procurement and Supply Apprenticeship. If you’re a smaller, non-levy paying company you can still be eligible for levy support.
This the Apprenticeship is usually delivered over a 2-year period, where the Apprentice will complete the CIPS Level 4 Diploma course and Category Management skills course, before completing an End Point Assessment. The End Point Assessment is professionally assessed by CIPS.
