Logistics Operations – Logistics Support Operative Pathway Intermediate Apprenticeship at Hull College Group

Course description

The aim of the Intermediate Apprenticeship in Logistics Operations is to attract Learners who are not sure which part of the logistics sector suits them best and allows them to obtain the basic grounding before specialising. Activities include working in the Warehouse, Traffic Office and Transport departments of the business, gaining experience of how each part operates, and learning and how they work together to ensure goods are delivered to customers in a timely and efficient manner.

For Apprentices taking this apprenticeship, there are two routes of entry.

  • Employed status

Employed status means that the prospective learner is already in the employment of an employer working in the logistics sector

  • Trainee Apprentice

It may be that an employer is considering taking on an individual whose job role sits fully under the Intermediate Apprenticeship in Logistics Operations, Operative Pathway, course content. 

In this case HCUK training may well have a prospective apprentice available for the employer to interview.

All apprentices will have a diagnostic assessment to determine if they are suitable for the job role and for the employer.

Course content

  • Competence Based Element - Level 2 Certificate in Logistics Support Operations.

This is a combined qualification incorporating competence and knowledge, which is separately assessed.

  • Functional Skills in English Level 1,
  • Functional Skills in Mathematics Level 1
  • Rights and Responsibilities in the Logistics Industry.

Entry requirements

  • In both routes of entry, the apprentice should be employed for at least 30 hours per week.
  • If you’re not employed, all is not lost. We can support you to find an apprenticeship place.

This is an open access qualification, but learners should be working – or looking to work – in a logistics operations environment, working as part of a team responsible for the safe delivery of goods to customers.

This may include loading and unloading of large or heavy items. You may also be required to unpack goods from packaging and recycle packaging materials.

All apprentices will have a diagnostic assessment to determine if they are suitable for the job role and for the employer. The purpose of diagnostic assessment is to identify prior learning and experience to tailor the Apprentice's Individual Learning Plan, not for screening out applicants.

HCUK Training and employers will identify the apprentice's learning and support needs and reflect these in the individual learning plan, recognising prior qualifications and experience

Further information

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 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 specialising.

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.

Intermediate Apprentices work in all areas of the sector to gain experience and prepare them for further development.

Logistics Operations Advanced 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.
