Certificate To Work (CtW)
The Logistics Sector is facing a huge driver shortage. Between 2010 and 2020, 149,000 new drivers will be needed in the sector. The Certificate to Work is a way of attracting new drivers into the industry no matter what their experience, as they will be able to demonstrate they have the knowledge, competence and skills to be a safe driver.
Logistics Challenge Day
Skills for Logistics, SWAN and Local Logistics Employers supported a ‘Made in China’ Event at Moulton School in Northampton. Over 200 students took part in the challenge, which is a one-day practical activity designed to support enterprise education and learning across the UK. During the challenge, students form their own logistics companies and compete to win a new business contract from a worldwide retailer.
CtW & Data Academy
Skills for Logistics have engaged with the team at Data Academy to help encourage fresh, new talent into the Logistics Sector and ensure these new recruits are equipped with the 'work ready' skills that employers in the sector really need.
