Warehousing and Storage

The economy relies on the efficient movement of goods within the UK to ensure that goods arrive on time and in the right condition. Warehousing and storage businesses play a crucial part in making this happen.

This course is designed to equip you with the relevant knowledge and skills to fulfil a successful career within a warehousing and storage environment.  The programme incorporates work based experience in order for learners to achieve a level 2 NVQ in Warehousing and Storage.

The course is suitable for candidates eager to establish and develop a variety of skills including processing and assembling orders, picking and wrapping goods and operating specialist machinery such as fork lift trucks and compact cranes.

Logistics employers have been reporting skills gaps and shortages amongst their ageing workforces. These Logistic employers need to attract more people into the industry at level 2 to train as warehousing staff. Not only can learners fill these skills gaps and shortages, but employers can look to provide a progression route to level 3 in order for learners to replace those within their workforce who leave or retire.
