k2e Supports the Delivery of Logistic Giant XPO’s UK Apprenticeship Programme
(Posted on 01/10/18)
kickstart2employment has teamed up with the award-winning global transport, logistics and freight forwarding company, XPO Logistics, to deliver apprenticeships to 16 employees in Wrexham, North Wales.
XPO is a top ten global provider of transportation and logistics services that operates a highly integrated network of people, technology and physical assets in 32 countries, with concentrations in Europe and North America. Hailed a Glassdoor UK Employees’ Choice Award Winner as a Best Place to Work, XPO is committed to empowering employees through upskilling and training opportunities. The company operates a highly successful apprenticeship programme throughout its UK sites and kickstart2employment has been selected to work with the team at its Wrexham facility.
Five employees are currently working towards their Level 2 Team Leading Apprenticeship whilst nine employees have enrolled on the Level 2 Warehousing Apprenticeship. Two members of the supervisory team have also committed to the programme by signing up to the Level 3 Warehousing and Level 3 Business Administration apprenticeships. All of the apprenticeships are being delivered via Welsh Government Frameworks, which include Essential Skills Wales in Application of Number and Communication.
Commenting on the progress to date, k2e Lead Assessor Craig Harvey commented:
“This apprenticeship programme has been incredibly well received by a group of highly motivated learners. We have tailored the training to suit the needs of each individual learner, which has enabled them to choose optional units that best suit their role at XPO. It is great to see the apprentices taking ownership of their learning and many are now looking for further opportunities to continue their learning beyond this programme.”
