Course Overview

This Degree Apprenticeship has been specially designed, and is delivered in partnership with the Supply Chain Academy, a business-led education provider dedicated to delivering supply chain excellence. It is designed to provide the essential knowledge, understanding, skills and experience required to operate effectively and successfully in a supply chain role.   The core areas focus on: supply chain operations; supply, demand and forecasting; network design; legislation; organisational strategy and finance.

This Apprenticeship is suitable for school/college leavers, and careers changers who wish to pursue a career in supply chain, or to those already in supply chain roles. It will allow apprentices to combine workplace learning opportunities with theoretical knowledge gained through a number of formal classes which are relevant to the organisation in which they work.      

Why study with us?

  • Apprenticeships are designed by industry professionals and are aimed at employees. They can be suitable as a way to upskill existing members of staff or as a pathway for new recruits.

  • 20% of the apprenticeship will be 'off the job' – this includes work-based projects and job related activities. 
  • There are no direct fees paid by the apprentice as the programme is supported through the apprenticeship levy. 
  • ​Successful apprentices will gain a BSc Professional Practice in Supply Chain Leadership.

Programme Duration and Delivery

It will typically take three and a half years to complete the Degree Apprenticeship, however, there may also be opportunities to join part way through the programme if candidates have considerable experience in a particular area. Apprentices will benefit from lectures and seminars, delivered at locations in Leeds, London or in-company. Learning is supported by a variety of online tasks and independent research activities which can be undertaken in the workplace. Each apprentice will create a learning plan which will allow them to develop their own unique pathway to their personal and professional goals.



Throughout the programme, apprentices are assessed via various methods including:

  • Reports
  • Presentations
  • Professional discussions
  • Assignments
  • Work-based projects
Apprentices will also create a portfolio of evidence throughout the programme in order to allow them to demonstrate how they have achieved the knowledge, skills and behaviours set out in the Apprenticeship standard. 

The final part of the Apprenticeship is the ‘end-point assessment’ which is an integral part of the degree. This is based on a substantial work-based project which is agreed by both the employer and the University in the final six months of the Apprenticeship, an interview, a presentation and viva.
