Logistics employers based in the East Midlands have traineeships available in the EastMidlands for ex-military personnel aged 16-24 that are currently unemployed for work placements. Mid-June 2014 to end-October 2014. More>>
Your time in the Service will have given you a wealth of skills and experience that logistics employers need. In collaboration with leading employers and colleges, we have developed a Traineeship Programme to help ex-military transition into a job in logistics.
Skills for Logistics have engaged with the team at Data Academy to help encourage fresh, new talent into the Logistics Sector and ensure these new recruits are equipped with the 'work ready' skills that employers in the sector really need.
The Logistics Sector is facing a huge driver shortage. Between 2010 and 2020, 149,000 new drivers will be needed in the sector. The Certificate to Work is a way of attracting new drivers into the industry no matter what their experience, as they will be able to demonstrate they have the knowledge, competence and skills to be a safe driver.
Did you know that 72% of businesses reported improved productivity when they took on an apprentice? Hiring apprentices helps businesses to boost productivity through growing their skills base whilst specifically developing their own qualified workforce.
Skills for Logistics, SWAN and Local Logistics Employers supported a ‘Made in China’ Event at Moulton School in Northampton. Over 200 students took part in the challenge, which is a one-day practical activity designed to support enterprise education and learning across the UK. During the challenge, students form their own logistics companies and compete to win a new business contract from a worldwide retailer.
We are currently consulting with employers on a number of suites of National Occupational Standards (NOS). These projects involve consulting with industry to write new or review current National Occupational Standards / qualifications. Click for more details.
