This is a blended apprenticeship programme suitable for employees working for employers in the warehouse and storage field. Learners on this programme would currently be employed to manage the day-to-day operations involved in supply chain. This would suit newly promoted Warehouse Supervisors to ensure the provision of a professional incoming goods, storage and dispatch service to customers.

With delivery via Tutor-led virtual classroom sessions, group work, online learning and 1-2-1 workshops, this 12 – 16 month programme will cover a variety of core warehouse & storage-related units. The result will be the acquisition of the knowledge and skills required to operate as a highly competent, compliant and industry skilled Warehouse Operations Supervisor.

How does the Warehouse Supervisor Apprenticeship Work?

The learning element of the course will be delivered over a 12 months, where the learner will work full-time for their employer and attend 1 theory-based lesson a month delivered via ZOOM by an expert subject Tutor.

The learner will also complete modules of self-directed online learning on our online platform OLLIE and workplace activities set by the Tutor. These activities equate to 1 day a month off the job across the 12 months which prepares learners for the live lessons. The 2 days a month off the job make up the 20% “off the job” requirements required to complete the apprenticeship.

There is then an End Point Assessment element which takes place after the 12 months of learning. This includes an improvement project in the form of a 4,000 word report so the learner must have the opportunity to carry this out.

The EPA can take up to 4 months.


What’s Next?

Upon successful completion of this level 3 Apprenticeship, the learner may go on to apply for positions within your business at Warehouse or Operations Manager level.

They may also wish to go on to study the Level 5 Operations / Departmental Manager Apprenticeship.
