IoC Chairman Carl Lomas,

 

The sector numbers are exploding and we need a workforce to sustain the quality of our delivery. Express apprenticeships look set to form an excellent solution under levy for our sector which is already rich in compliance-focused training delivery.

 

Employers want a one-stop shop for a full stairway of express qualifications across the UK and that one-stop shop has arrived

 

 

IOC has acted as secretary to the express employer group chaired by Justin Moore, CitySprint for the Dept for Education's Institute for Apprenticeships & Technical Education (IFATE). Employers across the alphabet have been involved, from APC to UK Mail. Originally a phase two submission, the Express Delivery Standard was born from courier & re-edited to include walking post for the Royal Mail.

 

Justin Moore CitySprint chaired the strong employer group meetings talking Express driver operative at Level two (2019)

We have outstanding contributions from so many employers, nationals, networks and local SMEs. The standard that will set the future qualification for the front line of our sector. It’s a big thank-you all round for everyone who has made this possible.’ ‘This will be a vocational qualification for our front-line teams delivering at the client face.

 

Broad input for the Express Standards came in from TfL & the LEP teams D2N2, LLEP, SEMLEP, NLEP and more, with education advice and support from AELP & Universities including West London, Derby, SHU and LMU. Employer group vision launched from UCL Institute of Education's Two-Way Street projects.
