Express Logistics Higher Apprenticeship 

Express Logistics – the rapid, guaranteed delivery of goods and packages to businesses and consumers – is one of the UK’s fastest growing sectors and makes a significant contribution to the UK economy in its own right, helping to support at least 72,000 jobs. Managing these fast-moving logistics processes is complex and demanding. This Higher Apprenticeship combines a Foundation Degree in Express Logistics with assessment of workplace competence and provides a thorough development route for young operations managers in the sector.

With much of the industry promoting from within and organising its own progression many current managers are educated below level 3. Skills for Logistics estimate that only 29% of the logistics management workforce holds qualifications at level 4 or above. This Apprenticeship fills this gap by offering a programme to meet the needs of the industry as it prepares for succession training.
