The aim of this Supply Chain Operations Apprenticeship is to provide the Logistics Sector with staff who have the knowledge, skills and confidence to help their businesses grow and to provide a career path for Intermediate Apprentices to move into higher level jobs and gain higher level qualifications.
Local Government and regional development plans identify priority sectors within geographical areas considered vital to their local economy. Supply chains are integral to whichever sectors are identified.
The Sector Skills Council breaks down supply chains into groupings:
Food and Drink; Chemicals and Petroleum; Automotive; Construction Industry; Electronics and Electrical; Pharmaceutical; Clothing and Footwear; Paperwork and Printing; Furniture and Furnishings and Utilities. Wherever a priority sector is identified, supply chain management has a central role to play in that sector for it to be effective and efficient.
