Skills for Logistics: Progressive Logistics

sflWith ‘Progressive Logistics’, Skills for Logistics will increase access for employers to state-of-the-art, quality assured skills and training products in order to drive business and performance improvement, resulting in smarter investment in skills.

Return on Investment

  • 5,000 individuals, from 50 employers, involved in a pilot scheme will be able to use ‘Stairway Interactive’ to improve both their individual performance and that of their employers.
  • 30 training providers, arranged around three hubs, will deliver quality assured training provision across Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.
  • 1,000 DCPC  trainers and 340 LGV driver trainers could be given the opportunity to become licenced, if results from feasibility studies are positive. It is expected that this would lead to an improvement of 5% in employer confidence in LGV training within 2 years.
  • It is expected that these initiatives will contribute to as much as a 19% improvement in the numbers of logistics employers investing in skills by 2017.
