Logistics employers need to attract new talent into the industry, especially women and those from underrepresented groups, to replace those who leave or retire. This Foundation Apprenticeship has been designed to attract those who are not sure which part of the logistics sector suits them best and allows them to obtain the basic grounding before specializing. This will encourage both Apprentices and existing staff to move on to gain a Level 3 qualification in Logistics Operations or in another aspect of Logistics, to help increase productivity and profitability. Foundation Apprentices work in all areas of the sector to gain experience and prepare them for further development. Logistics Operations Apprentices work as Warehouse Team Leaders/Section Supervisors, responsible for improving team performance, health and safety, customer service and scheduling the movement of goods by road, rail, sea or air.
