Supply Chain Leadership university degree launched

Leeds Trinity University and the Supply Chain Academy are offering a Supply Chain Leadership Professional Degree Apprenticeship.

Twenty-five apprentices from Royal Mail, Uniserve and Henry Shein have already been enrolled on the three year course.

The course is to be run at two sites – the Leeds Trinity campus and the Supply Chain Academy Upminster Court premises in Essex.

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

“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,” said The Supply Chain Academy director and director of human resources at Uniserve Paul Stone.
