Logistics UK Joins Forces With City & Guilds

Logistics UK, formerly the Freight Transport Association, has teamed up with City & Guilds to be able to offer a new CPC qualification in transport management.

According to a press release, the move comes after the withdrawal of the awarding body OCR from the transport manager CPC market in March this year and makes sure that there are additional avenues for operators and transport managers to be able to access training, which will be offered as online, classrooms-based, or a blend of both.

Chris Lipscomb, Logistics UK’s operations director, said: “We are proud to be working with City & Guilds to expand our capacity and ensure we meet the increased demand that will follow OCR’s final CPC examination registration in March. We anticipate high numbers of bookings and recommend enrolling now to avoid disappointment.”

He explained that the e-learning course will be made available to all classroom delegates before the exams and that the ‘pass first time or we pay for your resit’ guarantee has him confident that the market-leading course will give delegates everything they need to attain the qualification and advance in their transport management roles.

Suki Thorogood, head of industries, assessment and development (IAD) at City & Guilds, added: “We are delighted to partner with Logistics UK to offer the transport manager CPC qualification.

“The industry offers structured and sustainable employment opportunities and represents a key sector within the UK economy.

She added that the qualification ensures high professional standards, and being able to provide the course remotely, in person, or as a combination of both will ensure that opportunities are available for a wide range of learners.
