This is a programme specifically designed for cohorts of military personnel who have completed certain training programmes. These programmes have been ‘mapped’ against the requirements for the professional qualification awarded by The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport in the UK (CILT UK), and additional learning required is delivered through this virtual learning environment.

We at The Business School have designed the programme to meet your specific needs. You will undergo learning by reading written materials, reviewing presentations, accessing external links to other websites, and downloading further information. You will be supported by a tutor throughout your studies.

Your tutor will also act as your assessor. Once you have worked through the programme of learning, you will be asked to undertake a particular piece of work, which will be assessed against the standards in the CILT (UK) qualifications. Once your assessor has confirmed that your work has reached the standard required, further quality assurance on that assessment will take place. Once this process is complete, you will be awarded the CILT (UK) qualification!
