Warehouse and Storage at North Lancs Training Group (NLTG)

Course description

What is Warehouse and Storage?

If you enjoy co-ordinating and overseeing a job to its completion, then a career in the logistics, distribution and warehousing industry is for you.

You’ll be involved in organising the storage and distribution of goods to ensure the right products are delivered to the right location and on time – which may be within the UK, Europe or worldwide. You may be involved in organising the transportation of goods by air, sea, rail or road (including the selection of transport companies); stock control; and the processing, packaging and tracking of orders.

Understanding IT systems and the whole supply chain will be important in helping you to coordinate the receipt, storage and movement of goods effectively. You’ll work with a variety of customers and suppliers, so will need good communication skills and a passion for meeting their expectations by delivering excellent customer service. You’ll need to be flexible as the role will often require you to work shifts including nights, evenings and weekends.

What training will I receive?

Your Tutor will support and guide you throughout your Apprenticeship, making sure you develop the skills needed for your job role. As part of your Apprenticeship, you will need to complete a Maths and/or English qualification at Level 1 (ie Grade D/3) if you do not already have these qualifications. Depending on your Apprenticeship, you may also need to study an ICT qualification. Your NLTG Tutor will provide you with support and guidance.
