Leeds Trinity Agreement Signed

by | Jan 25, 2019

The Supply Chain Academy and Leeds Trinity University have signed an agreement to deliver Degree Apprenticeship in supply chain management.

25 apprentices, including employees of Uniserve, Henry Shein and Royal Mail have enrolled to study for the Supply Chain Leadership Professional Degree Apprenticeship over the next three years.

The Apprenticeship has been in development since 2016 through an employer group led by Uniserve and the qualification was approved by the Institute for Apprenticeships last month. 

Professor Margaret A House OBE, Vice-Chancellor at Leeds Trinity University, said: “We have been involved in the Trailblazer group to develop a brand-new Degree Apprenticeship for supply chain professionals since its inception two years ago. This is an exciting development in a sector that is crucial to the UK economy.

Paul Stone, Director of Human Resources at Uniserve and Director of The Supply Chain Academy, said: “The Industry is desperate for the level of skills that will be provided by the degree apprenticeship. The Degree Apprenticeship was developed in partnership with employers to address those skills gaps. It’s been refreshing to work with Leeds Trinity, which has a reputation of providing a professional education alongside industry experience, to develop highly employable graduates.”

Together, the organisations have developed a bespoke business-led degree tailored to employer’s needs, including delivery on campus at Leeds Trinity and at The Supply Chain Academy’s impressive Upminster Court premises in Essex.

Staff will spend approximately 15 days per year on both campuses, attending lectures and seminars, and will be expected to complete online tasks and independent research activities within the workplace.

They will be assessed through various methods including reports, presentations, professional discussions, assignments and work-based projects. The course will take approximately three-and-a-half years to complete.
