Warehousing and Storage NVQ - Intermediate Apprenticeship - Level 2

Overview

The Level 2 Certificate in Warehousing and Storage (QCF) aims to provide a suitable qualification that enables individuals to demonstrate their competence and understanding against a set of units based on the needs of the industry.

The qualification has been designed to support those involved with distributive operations such as dealing with the handling and storing of goods within a commercial, industrial or remover’s warehouse, or freight facility.

Entry requirements

You will need to be aged 16 years and over to apply for the apprenticeship programme. As this is a work-based qualification you must be employed in a relevant job role and working a minimum of 16 hours per week.

The applicant will undertake a diagnostic assessment at Level 1 for both maths and English and a free writing exercise prior to enrolment. You will be required to achieve a score of 50% or above in both subjects to ensure a place on the apprenticeship programme.

If you have passed maths and English GCSE with a grade A* to E or functional/key skills at Level 1, you will be required to evidence this with certificate/s which will then result in exemption from undertaking the maths and English functional skill qualification within the apprenticeship framework.

Start dates and fees

If you are between the age of 16 and 18 the apprenticeship is free of charge. If you are 19 and above your employer must pay a fee.

During your apprenticeship your employer is obliged to pay you a wage at the minimum rate for an apprentice.
