Candidates completing this program will be given a testimonial by CILT that they have met the criteria for direct entry to the Level 8 Higher Diploma in Business in Supply Chain Management. As a result they can advance beyond the usual level 7 program stage and move directly to th level 8 program.
Who can apply?
Graduates of the Higher Certificate in Sustainable Supply Chains, Digitalisation & Logistics (or its equilivant program) that have achieved a grade average of 55% or greater and have 3 years relevant supply chain experience.
When and How long is the course?
2 evenings (7pm – 10pm) per week for 6 weeks. Start date is 29th May 2023.
This is a pilot program, while SETU have agreed to recognise the testimonial for the entrants to the Higher Diploma in Business in Supply Chain Management (Level 8) in September 2023. Candidates that complete this program and seek deferral to later years may not be afforded the same recognition. It is therefore advisable that you only undertake this program if you intend to advance directly to the level 8 program.
The Higher Diploma in Business in Supply Chain Management is a major award at level 8 of the NFQ. It is frequently known as a conversion degree and is recognised in industry and qualifies for the entry criteria to level 9 programs. However some positions may call for a Level 8 Honours Degree specifically and might exclude the Level 8 Higher Diploma.
What is the cost?
The program is developed and funded by CILT Mobility & Supply Chain Skillnet, costs for qualified individuals are subsidized. Unsupported cost of the program is €1650. Candiates that qualify via Skillnet can access the program for €400.
