Course Overview

Warehouse and Logistics Apprenticeships are designed to deliver key skills, knowledge and behaviours to ensure an efficient supply chain for the receipt, storage and movement of a wide range of goods. They cover key skills from stock control, processing, packaging and order tracking, to understanding IT systems, customer service and ensuring the right products are delivered on time, to the right locations within the UK, Europe or worldwide.

Case Study

Beverley Clay at Darwen Diesels

Beverley says: “Our products are specialised and come from more than 30 different suppliers around the world so I need to keep on top of things. Usually, I get in touch with them via email or on the phone, but in the 18 months since I started the purchasing job, I’ve travelled to Europe, Australia and Singapore. I get a real satisfaction when the products finally arrive in our warehouse – it can take months sometimes.”
Having worked at the company in Blackburn for seven years, Beverley, has worked her way up through the ranks of the logistics side of the business.
“I started out in stores and then moved into export. There I had to master how to get things shipped overseas – I got to know all the shipping and customs rules around the world.”
During that time, Beverley has done a City & Guilds Level 2 and Level 3 in Logistics and got a Medal of Excellence last year.
