Apprenticeships in Logistics
Apprenticeship programmes are a great way to develop existing employees, recruit new staff and increase levels of productivity.
Logistics Apprenticeships at Mantra Learning
Recruiting new staff is costly and can come with risks. Up-skilling existing staff is a great way to ensure your organisation has the capable personnel you need, without resorting unduly to new hires. At Mantra Learning, we offer 3 apprenticeship programmes related to the logistics sector (see links below).
If you are a levy payer, you can use your government funding to prepare staff for a significant future in your business, by gaining internationally recognised qualifications.
Grow your own talent pipeline
Our Pathway to Apprenticeship programme is a fantastic platform to grow and nurture your own talent. With only 9% of the UK logistics workforce under the age of 25, there's a level of uncertainty to the future workforce.
We support you to recruit and train young people, providing them with a tailor-made programme, where they will spend time at our training centre and with yourself on a work placement for approximately four weeks teaching the basic skills, knowledge and behaviours of the modern-day workplace. On completion of this, we will then support the young person and your company to progress them on to an apprenticeship.

Benefits to an employer
In a survey commissioned by the government in 2017, 86% of employers reported benefiting from ‘the development of skills relevant to the organisation’ by hiring apprentices. A further three-quarters highlighted 'improved productivity, better quality of product or service, and higher staff morale.'
The syllabi for all degree apprenticeships have been designed in partnership with industry in order to plug existing skills gaps, meaning your employee will be learning what they need for success in their chosen field. Well-trained, highly skilled staff add value to all organisations, both directly and through their ability to coach, mentor and train other team members.
Over the last 12 months online sales of non-food sales grew 6.9% and now account for 29.6% of sales. What's more, retailers are reporting return rates of between 20%-40% of online sales. For clothing it can be much worse as a consumer may order 3 sizes and 3 colours meaning that 5 out of 6 items are sent back! Handling these returns cost retailers £20 billion a year. As the growth in online shopping increases so does the volume in returns, meaning more pickers, packers, loaders, delivery drivers, route planners, team leaders, supervisors and managers in both despatch and goods inwards departments.
