CIPS Examination Entry Deadline


As a CIPS Centre of Excellence, our school has until Friday, 1 February 2019 to enter our students for the March 2019 CIPS Diploma, Advanced Diploma and Professional Diploma examinations. For individual students, the deadline for exam entry is one week earlier ie 25 January 2019.

Textbooks for CIPS Courses


The Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply is no longer selling CIPS / Profex textboooks for the 2013 (current) range of qualifications. Textbooks can be obtained from Profex Publishing Ltd

These textbooks have the same content as the earlier CIPS / Profex textbooks for the 2013 qualifications. Profex usually offers a next day delivery service if your books are ordered before lunchtime.

CIPS (and Profex) will be selling textbooks for the new (2018) qualifications in due course.

Documents audited by CIPS, using CIPS-sourced official data, confirm the following pass rates for our study centre, in the most recent CIPS audit (July / Aug 2018):

CIPS Diploma (L4) – 91%

In 14 out of 15 subjects taught at our school, we achieved significantly above the CIPS average pass rate for the period audited.

Warm thanks to all students and tutors who helped achieve these super results.
