Far transcending the stereotypical, time-worn image of trucks and warehouses, the 21st-century supply chain and logistics industry is a highly dynamic, sophisticated and evolving one, transformed by technology and globalisation.
It all means that there could surely be few more attractive and rewarding sectors for school leavers and graduates alike, although this does create the need for the right training and recruitment solutions.
Bis Henderson Academy can provide precisely these solutions. Located in Northampton, the Academy was founded in response to the increase in interest and demand for workers within this highly specialised industry.
We offer supply chain and logistics apprenticeships – the vital first step towards a successful and fulfilling career in this exciting sector.
Is the Academy right for me?
The ability to find solutions to problems is essential in the logistics industry. With constantly changing technology, regulations and challenges, certain personality traits will serve you well during your time at the Academy.
The most suitable candidates for a career in supply chain and logistics are creative and have an eye for detail. However, we encourage anyone with an interest in logistics to contact us should they wish to find out more about studying with us.
What does life at the Academy entail?
If you’re successful in being selected for the Academy, you’ll begin a specially-tailored Gateway 2 Logistics course to give you a running start, after which you’ll follow a development program leading to a minimum NVQ Level 2 qualification. You will also receive expert guidance and support throughout.
We work with a wide array of reputable employers, all of whom have expansive supply chain and logistics operations, and thus a constant need for new, enthusiastic workers.
The Academy takes some of the pressure off these employers with regard to their selection and hiring of new candidates; we only ever enrol those who are enthusiastic about the industry, and offer invaluable support for both apprentice and employer.
Furthermore, we offer a wealth of sector expertise, working closely with The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT), the NOVUS Trust and our parent company, Bis Henderson.
