ESPO becomes CIPS exam centre

Published on 12/06/2018

At ESPO, we recognise the importance of supporting our staff with appropriate training to further their specialist knowledge and encourage progression.
The Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS) is an international organisation serving the procurement and supply profession. Since September, Encompass Group have delivered our in-house Level 4 CIPS training, and a well-co-ordinated Level 4 Apprenticeship in Commercial Procurement and Supply Chain for our employees.

CIPS exists to promote and develop high standards of professional skill, ability and integrity among all those engaged in purchasing, procurement and supply chain management. ESPO employees already receive training regularly on and off our premises; therefore we are pleased to announce that we have also now been appointed as a satellite exam centre for CIPS exams and our first exam took place in May.
“We have worked hard to develop and launch our in house training offering. Being able to recruit employees that have recently completed university or working with individuals who are progressing through the organisation and developing them through to senior roles are a key attribute of ESPO. The fact that we can now offer in house training to complement a range of procurement roles within the organisation only strengthens this offering."
- Sheena Kocherhans, Category Manager.
