CILT - Novus
You are here: Home > Careers > Novus
NOVUS courses, run through University of Huddersfield, have been designed collaboratively by industry professionals and academic experts to give students all of the skills, competencies, knowledge and experience needed to prepare them for a successful career in supply chain management. All great businesses excel at both strategic planning and managing practical details – that’s exactly what NOVUS courses are all about. They offer a new approach to learning about how efficient supply chains are vital to business success and provide a unique insight into supply chain theory and practice. They explore how leading companies plan and manage their supply chains and develop understanding of the business environment and professional leadership skills.  BA (Hons) Business with Supply Chain Management has a greater emphasis on general business management, whereas BSc (Hons) Logistics and Supply Chain Management focuses more on technical and analytical skills applicable to the supply chain. They are both four year sandwich courses that are packed with professional development opportunities through work experience, placements, mentoring, guest lectures, site visits and professional qualifications. 

NOVUS was founded by BiS Henderson and is part of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport family. Sponsor companies, providing the opportunities outlined, are:

CILT says that the scheme, led by industry for industry, is intended to fill a chronic skills gap – the logistics industry has experienced a regrettable shortage of sufficient graduate recruitment for many years and existing programmes are not presently supplying sufficient numbers of talented individuals. David Leach, from the University of Huddersfield, says “The demand for our graduates has always outstripped the supply of young people choosing to study the subject. The NOVUS scheme is a great way for industry and the university sector to work together to encourage more talented people in to the industry.”
