Once completed the intermediate apprenticeship in Warehouse and Storage you can look to progress onto the advanced apprenticeship programme.

What are the entry requirements?

There are no formal entry requirements for this qualification although Centres should ensure that the learners have the potential to achieve the units selected within this qualification. Learners must have the minimum levels of literacy and numeracy to comply with the health and safety aspects of the scheme, the completion of the learning outcomes and any assessment requirements.

What does this programme involve?

This qualification is aimed at those employed in a warehousing, logistics or storage environment. They may be responsible for goods in, stock, despatch or other related duties required for the job role.

This Intermediate Apprenticeship is to provide the Warehousing Industry with staff who have the knowledge, skills and confidence to help their business grow while also providing a career path for Apprentices to gain higher level jobs and qualifications. There are components to the framework which includes the full NVQ in warehousing which now combines the technical certificate, the Employers Rights and Responsibility unit along with functional skills in Maths and English.

Learners take two mandatory units covering health, safety, security and effective working relationships. Further credit comes from a wide range of optional units, covering activities including picking, processing assembling, dispatching orders and moving and handling goods/ equipment.

The optional units are:
-Checking stock levels and stock records
-Moving and/ or handling goods in logistics operations
-Sort goods and materials for recycling or disposal
-Keeping work areas clean
-Process returned goods
-Use equipment to move goods
-Using a forklift/ side-loader/ hoist/ crane

Learners who also have a customer service based warehousing role will also be able to complete units which enable them to demonstrate their communication skills when interacting with customers.

How is the programme taught and assessed?

Learners will be assessed in their workplace on their ability to work effectively. An assessor will visit the learner at regular intervals throughout the duration of the qualification to support the learner in the collection of required evidence needed for the qualification through different assessment methods such as; professional discussions & observations to check the learners progress, written questions, verbal questions and witness statements. The assessor may also set tasks to be carried out or assignments to be completed before their next visit.

All this will take place with minimum disruption to the learners usual working day. All of our assessors have industry experience and understand the challenges staff face day to day.

What else do I need to know?

This qualification is designed to give the learner the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and competency in line with their occupation and achieve a nationally recognised qualification to accredit this. Courses are tailored to suit both the employer and individual learner as each framework offers multiple options to ensure staff get the most out of the experience and clear organisational benefits are achieved.
