PwC's Academy is an approved provider for preparation of CIPS qualification exams. Our aim is to help the delegates achieve the qualification with strong underpinning knowledge that can be applied in practice.
At PwC's Academy we benefit our delegates by leveraging upon procurement expertise of the PwC group. With a huge workforce of over 2000 procurement professionals, PwC group has contributed to this profession by consulting clients with spending of over $40 billion and delivered an estimated saving of $5 billion. At PwC Academy we provide candidates with opportunity to learn from our rich history and knowledge bank in procurement. We achieve this by facilitating guest lectures from PwC professionals and incorporate PwC's best practices and case studies in our teaching methodologies.
Our team of seasoned CIPS trainers have walked through the requirements and challenges in practice. They possess the proven ability to troubleshoot issues on the ground. While their teaching objective is to facilitate success in exams, they frequently share their life experiences to create a rich and lasting flavor of learning.
CIPS qualification is considered to be a mark of distinction in the specialised field of procurement and supply. With over 80 years of history, CIPS qualification carries tremendous credibility across the world with over 100 thousand associated professionals in over 150 countries.
CIPS training sessions are split into two phases, tuition and revision. We spend around 150 hours of training during both of the phases. Trainings are delivered using face to face classess over the weekends and/or weekday evenings. We use the best in the class training material provided by the Chartered Institute in Procurement and Supply. The exam preparation incorporates extensive practice for writing case based answers and scenario based discussions with expert trainers.
The degree of complexity increases with each passing level of qualification. While undergoing initial levels provides a solid foundation for success in later levels, participation in initial levels is not mandatory to progress towards MCIPS. The level 2 qualification is considered appropriate for professionals with little or no academic/professional background in procurement. Delegates with elementary/advanced understanding about procurement and supply may start with level 3 or level 4 directly, subject to eligibility criteria.
The highest entry point in this process is the level 4, Diploma in procurement and supply, which requires two A levels (UK) or international equivalent. There is no entry requirement for qualification level 2 or level 3 and are recommended (not mandatory) for those who are starting their career in procurement operations and need solid foundation to move ahead with advanced levels.
