This unit develops your skill in managing a supply chain.  It addresses areas such as harmonisation, functionality, strategy and the impact that globalisation has on the supply function.

The IoSCM Level 5 Award qualification in SCM is awarded by SFEDI awards, a UK Ofqual-approved awarding body. It has a QCF Level 5 Credit Value of 10.

The course is a 10-day classroom-based programme and the training venue is the Supply Chain Academy at Upminster Court in Upminster, Essex. 

Teaching is by a blend of tutorials, presentations, text-based study, personal and syndicate exercises, and case studies. It is highly interactive: students participate in group activities throughout 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 a middle or senior management role and have extensive experience working within the supply chain. The qualification will develop your skills further and help you progress towards senior management. 
Those likely to undertake this qualification include those looking to progress into a senior capacity from their current role in supply chain management.
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.

The course will be delivered and assessed in English.
