Local Training provider sees unprecedented exam results for students who have embraced new online seminars.

S.L. Procurement Solutions Limited are a leading training provider, delivering Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply Chain courses to York and surrounding areas. Supporting both local businesses and professionals in all areas of procurement and supply chain.

The training company, who have seen huge success in moving all classroom seminars over to fully online sessions in light of COVID-19 and lockdown measures, have seen a tenfold increase in new professionals joining them to complete their CIPS studies, and of those new cohorts an astounding set of published exam results in June following the CIPS May examination series.

Now qualified MCIPS professional Sally Murphy completed all her CIPS topics with SL Procurement solutions and owes her newly achieved qualification to the flexibility of the online sessions and the dedicated tutors who have created immersive and interactive seminars with impetus on the current unprecedented landscape all businesses are dealing with today and in the coming months.

“I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing my CIPS seminars both in a classroom setting and online too,” said Sally. “I had my final exams at L6 Professional Diploma and of course everything had to stop and change. Head Tutor Steve reacted instantly and moved all classroom sessions online. This meant that there was no delay to my studies and I still completed my MCIPS, during a pandemic and with exceptional pass results.”

Sally added, “during a time when we all thought that we would have to press pause on our professional development, we were given such positivity from SL Procurement, nothing was too much trouble. We had additional online revision sessions, and study skills sessions to really boost our confidence and with exceptional insights to the CIPS exams and what to expect. A clear and helpful overview of the CR and OR exam formats and of course loads of amazing case studies too”.

S.L. Procurement Limited Director and Head Tutor Stephen Lovatt has embraced the current situation and found that the new structure of learning has shown him the resilience of our local talent pool of procurement professionals, “Our June results left me stunned. To see such dedication from our learners at a time that is very difficult for everyone only shows that our York region businesses and their professionals continue to be really dedicated to their studies.”

“We’re looking forward to welcoming another cohort of local professionals to our sessions this week delivering Exam Preparation and Study Skills sessions for those who have their CIPS exams to sit in July. We have increased our number of online sessions to continue to make studying with us and flexible as possible. I am really excited to see our next set of published results, and to welcome more of our York region learners too.” Added Stephen.
