A Business-led Work based Supply Chain Degree

In Partnership with Leeds Trinity University 

The degree apprenticeship in Supply Chain Leadership was approved in February 2018 by the Institute for Apprenticeships (IfA) and we were the first to start delivering this degree. We deliver the programme in partnership with Leeds Trinity University, who are ranked in the top 25 UK universities for learner satisfaction (Guardian University Guide 2020). Our first group will be graduating in the summer of 2022!

This programme has since grown to nearly 300 ‘students’ of all experience and backgrounds from all kinds of organisations that include; Airbus, AstraZeneca, BAE Systems, BT, Henkel, Uniserve, Pepsico & many more. 

This fully-integrated degree course, designed in partnership with supply chain employers, delivers and tests both academic learning and on-the-job training using our unique work based ‘blended learning approach’. With only 10 days per year off-site learning, this apprenticeship is suitable for school/college leavers and career changers who wish to pursue a career in supply chain, or those already in supply chain roles.

Completion of the apprenticeship, over three and half years, results in a full Bachelor’s degree. However, there may also be opportunities to join part way through the programme if candidates have considerable experience or previous professional or academic qualifications (e.g. Foundation degrees) in a particular area.

Every module is taught by our experienced supply chain professionals and work-based tutors, bringing personal experience and perspectives that you won’t find anywhere else. Learning is supported by a variety of online tasks and independent research activities that can be undertaken in the workplace.

Core topics include; Supply chain operations, sales and operational planning, demand planning and forecasting, network design, legislation, warehouse and inventory, logistics, technology, global trade, organisational strategy and finance.

Everyone will benefit from lectures and seminars, delivered at locations in Leeds, London, or in-company.





Dedicated Courses

Our courses have already been tailored to the degree apprenticeship and we are part of the group that has designed and written the standard.


10 Days Offsite Per Year

The degree apprenticeship is available to those working in the supply chain or interested in a career in supply chain and will only require around 10 days at the Supply Chain Academy per year.


Approved Levy Spend

As approved apprenticeship providers any degree apprenticeship training booked through us can be offset against your apprentice levy.

Register Your Interest

Degree apprenticeships are still quite new and the supply chain leadership degree has only just become available, so training suppliers and course places will be limited. We therefore suggest that you register your interest now –  you can ensure you are at the front of the queue, to take advantage of this great opportunity and to invest in your people while making the most of your levy.

Please also register if you are an existing supply chain professional who is interested in the degree and would like to know more.
