Warehousing and Storage Apprenticeship: Employer Guide

Why take on a Warehousing and Storage Apprentice?

Logistics employers report skills gaps and shortages in the industry, including literacy, numeracy and communications skills. This framework will help you effectively plan to meet your needs in the future by ensuring your staff have the technical skills required to replace those who leave or retire, and help your business grow.

This qualification has been used by employers since 2005 and uses the technical and competence qualifications valued by logistics employers.
