Further Your Career with NEUPC's Study Centre


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


Since September 2016, our colleagues at the North Eastern Universities Purchasing Consortium (NEUPC) have offered SUPC members the opportunity to study for CIPS qualifications through their national study centre.  From September 2017, they will be offering levels 3, 4 and 5, along with a new study option of day-attendance.  


The NEUPC study centre contextualises your learning to the HE Sector. While the CIPS materials focus on traditional supply environments, sessions ensure that you learn how theory and recognised best practice can apply in the real workplace.  To learn more, click here
