Level 3 Procurement & Supply Assistant Apprenticeship

The Level 3 Procurement & Supply Assistant Apprenticeship is a great qualification to up-skill the administrative or operational members of your team who are looking to improve their procurement knowledge and ability.

This apprenticeship standard was approved in 2020 by the Education and Skills Funding Agency and it largely follows the CIPS Level 3 Advanced Certificate qualification. With the end point assessment after the apprentice has successfully completed the CIPS Level 3 course being a key difference in the apprentice route. The end point assessment involves a 3000 word project with a report which will be presented to CIPS (EPAO) as a presentation with Q&A afterwards.

The apprenticeship process is supported by off-the-job learning and apprentice coaches. Apprentices have progress reviews every 12 weeks during the qualification and the end point assessment with their coach to review progress and ensure that they are on track. Off-the-job learning is an essential requirement of the apprenticeship which requires the employer to allow 20% off-the-job learning time.
