The staff development & qualification arm of the Supply Chain Academy have been providing training courses in supply chain and business management for over 20 years and can provide university qualifications.
‘Today’s business is increasingly driven by the performance of it’s supply chain’.
Supply chains are rarely aligned to support the business strategy. Functional teams often have competing priorities, of supply and demand. The result can be lost sales, write-downs and discounts, the additional cost to ship and warehouse excess inventory and obsolete stock.
The Supply Chain Academy provides innovative learning experiences for CEOs & Executives to explore and overcome these issues. It provides an environment for executives to come together, to develop ideas and to plan exciting futures. We are different because our focus is not only on formal training, but also on thought leadership – learning from the experience of your peers and sharing best practice.

Upminster Court, the home of the Supply Chain Academy, was built in 1905 by architect Sir Thomas Reilly, and has had many uses in a history spanning more than 100 years.
Purchased in 2007 by our chairman Iain Liddell, the building has been restored and refurbished, resulting in an outstanding state-of-the-art learning centre, without compromising original features.
The combination of old and new means the Academy is the perfect venue for executives to learn, share and relax, away from the hustle and bustle of the modern day office environment.
The Supply Chain Academy is the only worldwide learning centre that focuses solely on the supply chain, offering excellent facilities for executives to learn and stay, with the opportunity to gain university qualifications.
