Warehousing and Storage

Advanced Apprenticeship and Level 3 Diploma

Your supervisors and team leaders will be trained to lead and develop others to make warehouse processes smoother, safer and more efficient

The programme

The Level 3 Diploma in Warehousing and Storage (QCF) has been designed by Skills for Logistics for learners who are working in warehousing and storage operations who are likely to have responsibility for supervising the work of others, leading teams and responsibility for other operations.

It is a nationally-recognised qualification which demonstrates that an employee has the necessary competence and knowledge to perform warehousing and storage operations at a supervisory or specialist level, which can be used for career development purposes. It is also suitable for apprenticeships as it is recognised within the advanced apprenticeship framework for Warehousing and Storage.

The Level 3 Diploma in Warehousing and Storage is a combined qualification that forms both the competence and knowledge elements of an Advanced Apprenticeship.

Apprentices will also take the Level 2 Award in Employee Rights and Responsibilities in the Logistics Industry, and Functional Skills in English and maths.
