The Warehousing and Storage apprenticeship deals with the movement and storage of goods, and is an essential part of logistics operations. As a Warehousing and Storage apprentice, you learn skills in operating specialist machinery to get things onto – and down from – high storage spaces; learn about keeping some goods at low temperatures; and improve your spatial awareness, so that you can quickly and efficiently load objects of different shapes and sizes.
Your duties will depend on your employer, but you could manage stock; audit inventory, keep equipment in good working order; process returned goods; or manage the receipt, storage and dispatch of goods. You might even learn how to maintain the safety of hazardous goods and materials.
