IFA ask for Higher Technical Qualification material.

Demand lies in level two and three.

The Transport & Logistics apprenticeships sit inside a Trailblazer route panel of the IFA for the Dept of Education. This year a review of the whole sector vision has begun, a report is expected with a launch for the new sector vision before Easter next year.

Updating on the review. Jill Nicholls opened, ‘We would love to see more than apprenticeships in Transport & Logistics, we would like to see a Higher Technical Qualification, HTQ route.’

The initial findings of the review questionnaire of Transport and Logistics route panel for apprenticeships route review will be publish in May 2023. There will be a launch event.

Lisa Marriott detailed the responses submitted to the review of apprenticeships in transport & logistics, about half of respondent’s were operators, Trailblazer chairs, training providers and professional bodies were amongst the mix. Looking at demand it lies in the levels two and three with a future look to more level fours and degree apprentices. Present demand of four and five levels is low. Top of learning demand was Digital and IT skills, followed by H&S. Emerging skills, Supervisory skills. Only half of respondents had viewed the IFA skills map. While Transport & Logistics name has stood well, a look at the name rose question of should it be ‘Supply Chain.’ And did the name cover modes, road, rail and air.

New qualifications mentioned for consideration, customs operative, warehouse stock controller, tram driver, waste operations, supervisory occupations in express. Forklift driving.

DfT want to see HTQs, (Higher Technicla Qualifications) IFA have no present position here, is there anyone out there to help.

Principle and characteristics that have come up at every level for transport and logistics are people management, leadership, accountability, personal learning and continuous development.

There will be a launch week next year for Transport & Logistics. We want case studies and best practice.

Session three for the review is 12th January, Session 4 will be 28th March. (This is a direct clash with the national trade show, Intralogistex.)
