CPL Group started a Procurement Apprentice Scheme in 2017 making an investment in the scheme of up to £300,000. This investment has supported 15 apprentices to study towards a Level 3 NVQ in Business Administration, whilst working in a procurement role within a further education college.
Each apprentice was based at a different college throughout the country. During their apprenticeship they have been given the opportunity to gain valuable experience of procurement practice together with an element of finance and business training.
CPL Group hosted a celebration day for the apprentices during National Apprentice Week 2019, which had a ‘Blaze a Trail’ theme. We invited the group to the CPL Group Head Office to meet and network with each other and to meet our procurement teams. During the day the apprentices attended a series of sessions including an CPD accredited training module in Contract Law.
