Course Summary

This work based Apprenticeship is ideal for those wanting a career working within the Warehousing industry. You would learn in your workplace, away from your workstation and have the opportunity to use our new modern facilities here at the College. You will have the opportunity to practise and embed your skills at work.

As a Warehouse Operative you could work in a variety of warehouse environments. Work activities include taking deliveries, checking for damaged/missing items, storing goods, moving stock by various methods, picking/packing orders, loading goods for dispatch, maintaining stock records and documentation, and cleaning. You would safely use a range of equipment, machinery and vehicles relevant to your role and setting. This could include mechanical racking systems, materials handling equipment (MHE) or fork lift trucks. You will communicate with a wide range of people and customers. You will meet customers’ expectations by providing a quality service that encourages repeat business. You will become highly competent in using industry-recognised systems and associated services (eg Traffic/Warehouse Management Systems) and will be able to work under pressure to tight deadlines. It is common within this sector to work shifts including 4-on-4-off, days, nights, evenings and weekends.


For those without the required level of maths and English you will need to achieve these at Level 1 and take a test at Level 2 to be successful in your Apprenticeship.

If you are looking to improve your skills or change career direction, our Apprenticeship Recruitment Team can discuss your needs and advise you on finding a suitable employer.
