CIPS membership grades
Fellow (FCIPS) – awarded to existing Members with a record of outstanding achievement and competence in purchasing and supply chain management.
Member (MCIPS) – most successful applicants achieve this grade by completing the CIPS Graduate Diploma. However, alternative routes include the successful completion of an accredited degree, N/SVQ level 4 in Procurement or a CIPS Personal Development Programme.
Associate Member – there are a variety of routes to associate membership:
Members working towards the Graduate Diploma who have completed or have been awarded exemptions from the foundation stage will be awarded associate membership.
Members who are completing a post graduate programme accredited by CIPS or progressing on a NVQ level 4 in Procurement will be awarded associate membership as they progress through these programmes.
Associate members who are progressing on the Graduate Diploma, NVQ or CIPS accredited degree enjoy a greatly reduced subscription rate whilst having access to all CIPS services.
Senior practitioners who are working towards MCIPS through the Personal Development Plan (PDP) route* will also be awarded associate membership as they progress through their PDP. Associate members progressing through the PDP attract a higher subscription rate than the studying associate members.
*The PDP route to full membership is an assessment of experience, knowledge and responsibility across an individual's purchasing career. Upon successful completion of a PDP full membership (MCIPS) is awarded. It does not award the Graduate Diploma.
Student – Student membership is for those who are at the earliest stage of their professional development and are undertaking a study or competence based programme leading towards completion of the CIPS Graduate Diploma or its equivalent. Students have full access to CIPS benefits whilst receiving a substantial reduction in their membership subscription during their course of study. On completion of the Foundation Stage, or its equivalent, Students will move up to Associate Members.
Affiliates – this grade is for those individuals who have a strong interest in purchasing and supply, wish to keep themselves up to date with professional developments and to take advantage of the products and services offered by CIPS, but who do not wish to become professionally qualified. There are no entry qualifications.
