Do you prefer to work and learn in a very hands-on environment?
Do you consider yourself an adaptable individual who enjoys working in a multiskilled sector with opportunities for progression?
A Warehouse Operatives Apprenticeship will take you to work and learn in a variety of warehouse environments.
From 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, these are just some of the tasks and skills you will learn from this apprenticeship. You will be required to learn how to safely use a range of equipment, machinery and vehicles, as relevant to the role and setting. This could include mechanical racking systems, materials handling equipment (MHE), or forklift trucks to name a few.
You will attend regular coaching sessions with a qualified and industry-experienced Apprenticeship Coach who will conduct remote sessions lasting approximately 1 hour. (During this time, you will be set work to undertake as part of your off-the-job training). At quarterly intervals, you will receive a face-to-face visit to discuss progress and learning with practical activities being reviewed where necessary.
Learn - Earn - Grow
Learn a brand new skill that comes with a UK-recognised qualification. You are officially an employee of the company so you will also be earning a wage while you learn. You will not only be learning skills towards a new qualification but growing as an individual by boosting your professional profile within a working environment. There are no course costs to you personally.
Develop your Maths and English up to level 2 with homework and tutor support to prepare for the final exam (If you have not already achieved this prior to starting the Apprenticeship). As an apprentice, you will be given 20% of your paid working hours as off-the-job training time. For example, for a 30-hour working week, you could be given 6 hours to complete off-the-job training within the workplace.
Off-the-job training activities may include; online course work, job shadowing other staff, new tasks you are being trained on within the workplace which forms part of your role, and internal/external courses in-line with the standard.
