This course will develop your understanding of the supply function as a whole.  It explores the issues that can arise in managing a supply chain and offers guidance in overcoming them.

The IoSCM Level 3 Award qualification in SCM is awarded by SFEDI awards, a UK Ofqual approved awarding body. It has a QCF Level 3 Credit Value of 9.

The course is a 7-day classroom-based programme delivered in our prestigious training centre in The Supply Chain Academy, Upminster Court, Upminster in Essex.

Teaching is by a blend of tutorials, presentations, text-based study, personal and syndicate exercises, and case studies.  The course is highly interactive: students participate actively at all stages and are required to undertake about five hours of pre-course reading.

Assessment is through a mixture of written submissions and a portfolio of evidence developed during the programme.

We have designed this course for professionals who have gained experience in supervisory management and have worked in supply chain management for two years or more. The qualification is designed to develop management skills further and build in-depth knowledge of supply chain disciplines.

  • Those looking to build in-depth knowledge of supply chain management
  • Those looking to progress their career within supply chain management
  • First-level managers such as field supervisors in SCM roles
  • Senior foremen and others about to progress to supervisory status
There are no formal entry requirements for this qualification. However, in order to benefit from the qualification, you should possess communication skills sufficient to allow you to address the assessment requirements
