LPP strapline

The Academy at LPP

The Academy at LPP is a new holistic quality national study ‘plus’ procurement programme, offering apprenticeships at levels 2 to 4 in procurement and other related courses, as well providing extra development opportunities for existing procurement professionals.

We are on the look-out for people who really want to make a difference to the NHS.  By starting a career in procurement or by simply gaining skills and qualifications in this area, you’ll play a vital role in helping the NHS to deliver excellent care and value for money.

Why an apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships combine practical, on-the-job training and study and are a brilliant way to get your career started. By becoming an apprentice you’ll benefit from:

  • Earning while you learn
  • Gaining practical and relevant work experience
  • Boosting your CV and your career prospects
  • Achieving qualifications to put you ahead of the rest.
