Employers' input sought for standards project

Skills for Logistics, the Sector Skills Council for the freight logistics industries, is calling upon logistics employers with an interest in Continuous Professional Development and training to have their say in the development of National Occupational Standards (NOS) - the building blocks of training and qualifications - to help ensure industry relevance.

The three standards that will be developed / revised are:

  • Logistics Operation Management
  • International Freight Administration
  • Warehousing and Storage

For each of these National Occupational Standards, employers' views are being sought through a series of project meetings and a consultation process involving online feedback.

To participate in the development programme, introductory meetings are being held at the following locations and dates:

  • Logistics Operation Management project: 16 November - Birmingham (near NEC) and 21 November - Edinburgh
  • Warehousing and Storage: 28 November - Milton Keynes.
