Level 3 Diamond Package

CIPS Advanced Certificate

Our premium CIPS offering, which has access to all 5 modules via our learning system and an additional live class offering with 30 hours in live virtual classes with our Director Laura Scarfe.

Do you want to advance your career, earn more and achieve greater employability?

Stop feeling stuck and gain the qualifications needed to fast track your future.

Do you lack qualifications to back up your experience?
Do you secretly worry that your instincts are wrong because of this lack of training?

I was in your position. I worked in procurement roles without any training and wondered whether my instincts and processes were correct and in line with best practice theory. This led to me constantly second guessing myself. It did not help that I was young and was desperate to be taken seriously and advance in my career.

I took the plunge and started my CIPS training, and although it sounds cheesy, it changed my life. The CIPS training showed me that I did know what I was doing and gave me the theoretical models to back me up and give me more confidence in my role. It also fast-tracked my career. The month I finished my CIPS I was offered a job with a £17,000 pay rise.

This could be you! Imagine having the qualifications, the experience, and the confidence. You will be a triple threat in the industry and have a stronger base from which to apply to new roles or achieve promotion. Yes this training is a commitment, but nothing in life worth anything comes easy.

...Invest in your future today!

Why Us

What sets us apart?

Edu-tainment

Numerous research studies have found that laughter does help increase learning. One study identified that online classes are more rated by students more highly if they contain jokes and other humour, while a study claims that funny lectures are more effective lectures. Another study suggested that laughter can aid memory in adults.

This is why we subscribe to edutainment. I understand that your attention span is much less than you think, so I try to tell you stories and bring in humour where I can to hold your interest. Learning does not need to be boring and the professional manufacturing widget examples will not be seen.

Micro Learning

Microlearning is information delivered in small purposeful units. Broken down into small sections this means the learning can be better digested by the student.

We have broken down our videos into small chunks for each learning outcome 1.1, 1.2, etc. to help our students retain the information for their exam.

Not only this but we have created exercises and added YouTube videos for each outcome also. This will aid memory retention.

Expert Teaching

Our tutors are experts in Procurement & Supply, plus they are also assessors and assessment authors, meaning they write and mark questions.

This gives a 360 degree view of what is needed to pass your CIPS exams. Laura is also a neuroscience geek who understands how memory works to help you retain information and score highly in your exams!

Director of Training

Laura Scarfe

Laura is the founder and owner of Business Academy Online Ltd. Having a background in public and private sector procurement Laura has trained over 5000+ professionals in these areas over the 13 years she has been running her company.

Specialising in CIPS procurement training, negotiation, and emotional intelligence, Laura has designed and delivered training programs for multi-million-pound companies including an organisation set up under UN Charter. Having received many accolades over the course of her career for her engaging style and innovative approaches to learning, Laura believes in the concept of edu-tainment, the fact that laughter leads to greater memory retention. A gifted storyteller, her programs are infused with passion, dynamism and humour.

Through international negotiations, Laura became fascinated by human behaviour and in particular non-verbal interactions. Unintentionally insulting potential suppliers with her body language led her to studying human behaviour and create internationally recognised training courses in this area. She is one of the few trainers in the world to be a Paul Ekman Certified Trainer and has been featured numerous times on various BBC radio shows to analyse behaviour and give advice.

Laura wants to help busy professionals, achieve their qualifications to help their employability, while also helping them understand and manage their emotions and relationships to improve their confidence. Her training aim is to ensure that they not only reach but surpass their potential. When not working you are most likely to find Laura travelling the world with her partner, especially to their favourite country South Africa, or at home with her animals, her miniature daschund Pepper and her cats.
