Entry Requirements

Every employer is different and therefore the entry requirements can vary. As a guide, you ideally need GCSE grade 4 in English and Maths and
in some cases ICT. However, we will work with you and provide additional support to help you achieve their requirements, either prior to your Apprenticeship via a pre-Apprenticeship or during the delivery of your programme.

The candidate needs to be employed in a vocation relevant to warehousing and storage in the logistics sector.


We have a bespoke training facility, designed to develop candidates while ensuring their safety at all times. We offer accredited training on a variation of lifting equipment.

Additional Costs

Candidates aged 16-18 all fully funded, however any candidates over 19 are partially funded therefore the employer may be asked to pay a contribution to the programme.
