The Council has with the Chamber’s support, successfully trained a large number of candidates through professional CIPS training at Levels 4, 5 and 6. The results have been very impressive with significant numbers of students achieving the highest levels of passes in many modules. The teaching support, materials provided in addition to the standard CIPS brochures and the online resources in respect of revisions guides, previous papers and other supporting information have been highly valued by our students.
The Chamber have also been able to offer the Council additional value through running a series of short course/seminars for us in groups of 15-20 where specific areas and other soft skills like contract management, introduction to procurement, negotiation skills and body language/effective relationships have all proved hugely popular and of great benefit to our procurement, projects and service staff.
We are now hoping to continue our working arrangements with Chamber Business Training through them providing CIPS training support accessed through our Apprenticeship levy training arrangements.
My experience of Christine Lambe and her team is that they provide a highly professional, responsive service and always seek to provide support and advice and to align their training to meet our needs. I have no reservations in recommending them to support your training requirements if you choose to proceed.
