IOC fellow, Sue Bancroft, HR Director at Tuffnells is set to sign the first candidate.

In the photo, Bill Foreman, Depot Manager at Slough has put forward Atique Khan, ‘Tee’ to be the first ever candidate to start the brand-new Express logistics sortation course.



Tee, based at the Heathrow Tuffnells site started in the sector via a short work academy programme funded by DWP. The SWAP was an introduction to Express Logistics run by West Thames College near Heathrow. Tee now moves onto the full sortation apprenticeship and will use the IOC training text book alongside a twelve month course with the Heathrow area, West Thames College. (WTC)

I'm delighted to be introducing the Sortation apprenticeship to Tuffnells. This qualification will be invaluable in attracting apprentices to our business as well as delivering the skills to our team members as we continue to invest in our Green Shoots Learning and Development programme


West Thames College Principal, Tracy Aust comments

The sortation apprenticeship with the SWAP course forms a seamless stairway into the Express Logistics sector. We welcome Tuffnells to the first candidate in what should roll out into something very special for Express Logistics solution for the next generation workforce.
