Long Description

This SPA in Supply Chain Management has been developed to address the growing need for upskilling the Irish workforce to support economic growth and development. With the ongoing uncertainty around the impact of Brexit, customs regulations, supply chain disruption and ever-increasing competitiveness in global trade, this qualification has now become more pertinent than ever and has received overwhelming support from industry.

CIT has a strong relationship with regional Pharmaceutical clusters and uses feedback of skill requirements and graduate profiles to develop academically relevant courses. Thus providing a workforce with relevant critical skills, crucial to the current upkeep and expansion of this fast-developing pharmaceutical cluster.

This course attracts learners already possessing sufficient experience in the field of logistics, supply chain management, business or engineering discipline, who are endeavouring to specialise or tailor their skillset. Learners who have successfully graduated from an appropriate level 7 qualification who are looking to continue their professional development will be considered.

Each module aims to broaden and deepen the critical knowledge of the academic theories pertinent to an industry with highly regulated and automated manufacturing and distribution environments such as GMP, QA, QC, Lean Manufacturing, Operations Management and Lean Supply Chains.

Learners are expected to think critically around problems, seek solutions and communicate in an industry-specific way. This module aims to be flexible in its delivery by utilising online delivery methods, supplemented with class tutorials
On this course, learners will develop critical soft skills that a future manager in the sector would require.
