The majority of the industry covers storage of general merchandise, but can also include the specialised areas of storage of gas or liquids, agricultural commodities and refrigerated goods.
Businesses operating in this sector require a range of skills development, and the FDQ warehousing and storage suite is designed to assist these businesses and the learning providers which work with them to up skill staff in the right areas.
These qualifications cover a diverse range of skills and knowledge from health and safety to effective working relationship development; picking and wrapping to stock management and order processing; customer service to use of forklift side loaders.
The purpose of these qualifications is to develop the warehousing workforce, providing organisations of all sizes across all sectors with the staff needed to increase productivity and efficiency.
The qualifications within this suite will equip individuals with the skills, knowledge and experience needed to undertake warehousing operations roles in a range of settings.
Level 2 Certificate in Warehousing and Storage - £80.00
Level 3 Diploma in Warehousing and Storage - £90.00
These are particularly popular with employers as training and assessment can be carried out largely within the workplace. This means qualifications can be undertaken during the working day and require minimal time off the job.
The qualifications and associated training can be tailored to be relevant to an individual’s daily work and business procedures, to ensure maximum benefit is derived by both the learner and their business.
Jason Bennellick, of Prima Bakeries, Scorrier, has become the first bakery apprentice in England to successfully complete the L2 Craft Baker Apprenticeship, achieving a Merit grade.
The L2 Baker Standard contains three distinct routes, one of which is Craft Baker. This specialism was designed to revive traditional craft bakery skills, which the apprentice must prove in their bakery end-point assessment.
Supporting Jason in his apprenticeship learning and end-point assessment preparation were Truro and Penwith College. The college introduced the Baker Apprenticeship Standard in 2018, in recognition of the importance of the baking industry to the Cornish economy.
Baking Lecturer and course developer, David Williams, who himself has 40 years’ experience in craft bakery said he was ‘very proud’ of Jason’s achievement. He added,
‘It has been a pleasure to work alongside Prima to develop our Bakery Apprenticeship programme and deliver the skills needed in the workplace’
Prima’s Managing Director, Mark Norton, described the bakery apprenticeship as ‘exemplary’ and that Prima were keen to take on a new apprentice to help build the future of craft baking in Cornwall.Read more
