Course Summary:  

Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes designed around the need of both the Apprentice and their employer.

This is an entry-level Apprenticeship which provides the foundation knowledge skills and experience for the role of Supply Chain Operator within occupational areas in the Supply Chain industry.

Supply Chain Operators are primarily responsible for managing the movement of goods for a variety of customers across all sectors, and as such their customer base will range from large global organisations to sole traders and private customers in local areas, depending on their organisation.

They may be required to work in shifts, for example overnight or working on weekends, and some (depending on the nature of their organisation) may be required to work internationally in Europe or at worldwide destinations.

Supply Chain Operators communicate and come into contact with a wide range of people and customers, and have a passion to meet customers’ expectations by providing a quality service that encourages repeat business, showing drive and energy even when challenges arise.

Individuals in this role are highly competent in using industry-recognised systems and associated services within their industry sector, and are able to work under pressure to tight deadlines, with excellent time management skills.  They are proactive and meet agreed commitments and expectations, taking responsibility for their own actions and doing the right thing.
