The following information relates to the qualifications offered through the CILT(UK) Learning Centre (LC) only. Please refer to the individual courses for the MSc and APICS qualifications.

The CILT(UK) Learning Centre

The CILT(UK) Learning Centre is designed for busy professionals, wanting to boost their career opportunities. Our globally-recognised qualifications develop knowledge and skills across a variety of professional areas. Our Self Study model is a flexible and cost effective means of demonstrating your professional skills and your commitment to meeting a professional standard.

Learners are supported by specialist Development Coaches (DC) throughout their studies. This means you can set your own timetable and balance your work, study and personal commitments.

CILT(UK) qualifications are based on agreed standards for the profession and have been developed by practitioners for practitioners. The learning materials combine theory, concepts and practice backed up by numerous real-world transportation, logistics, operations and supply chain management case studies.

You can enrol on to the qualification most suited to your level of knowledge and experience whenever you wish throughout the year as there are no fixed start dates.  If you are not sure which level of qualification is the most suitable for you then please contact the Learning Centre.  We require a filled in enrolment form, a form of pictorial ID and a signed Learner Agreement when enrolling on a qualification.  

We advise all students to become CILT(UK) members, granting access to the Institute's member benefits including the The Knowledge Centre, offering unlimited online access to Europe’s largest specialist collection of logistics, supply chain and transport information. 

Please note the CILT(UK) Learning Centre operates independently of the CILT(UK) Awarding Organisation which regulates and quality assures the qualifications in line with Ofqual regulations.

How can CILT(UK) qualifications benefit individuals?

Obtaining a professional qualification demonstrates to current and prospective employers that learners meet recognised Professional Standards and have shown a commitment to professional development. Having a qualification can help individuals through increased confidence and greater efficiency in day-to-day activities.

How can CILT(UK) qualifications benefit organisations?

CILT(UK) qualifications provide a benchmark against which both the employer and their employees can be measured. They can also contribute to a positive image of a company committed to the development of its employees. Supporting learning and development often leads to increased morale and loyalty, as staff see that their employer wants them to progress and succeed. Often the initial cost of funding a qualification is more than offset by an increase in efficiency and performance, in addition to the time and costs saved by being able to fill vacancies internally with fully trained individuals. 

CILT(UK) qualifications can also provide reassurance to customers that members of staff have reached a certain level of competence which will result in greater business opportunities.
