What is the Apprenticeship Standard?
This is a new style of Apprenticeship. Standards are occupation-focused, they are not qualification-led.
The learning happens throughout the apprenticeship and the apprentice is assessed at the end.
They need to prove that they can carry out all aspects of their job. They develop transferable skills and gain credibility too.
The Apprentice will gather evidence from the workplace, which will be placed into an electronic portfolio. They will also study eLearning and eTesting modules as well as receiving high quality training from experienced Didac staff.
Warehouse Operatives work in a variety of warehouse environments. Work activities include 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.
They are required to safely use a range of equipment, machinery and vehicles, as relevant to their role and setting. This could include mechanical racking systems, materials handling equipment (MHE) or fork lift trucks.

The minimum duration is one year before taking the end-point assessment.
