Transport, logistics and engineering

Employing more than 2.7 million people, the world of transportation and logistics is a bustling and energetic industry that operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days of the year. 

Sector insights

Employing more than 2.7 million people, the world of transportation and logistics is a bustling and energetic industry that operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days of the year. 

The pandemic has only highlighted the transport and logistics industry’s incredible ability to adapt and to continue to operate and deliver. The likes of the vaccine rollout and a rise in online sales has led to increased demands placed on the industry - but it has also provided increased job opportunities across the supply chain, from logistics managers through to HGV drivers. 

However, over 85% of engineering and manufacturing firms have said that more generally, they are facing skills shortages. A prominently ageing workforce, a lack of qualified candidates and general understaffing are all current concerns for the industry. A recent report showed that demand for transport and logistics employees is 4.6 times higher than young people currently entering the sector - leaving the industry keen to recruit enthusiastic and driven learners. 

It’s therefore a sensible time to build a curriculum to support the transport, logistics and engineering sector. Our range of qualifications will provide your learners with the skills and knowledge to kickstart or progress a career and provide pathways directly into employment.

Case study: Engineering futures 

Beverley Grammar School currently delivers NCFE’s V Cert in Engineering. As the oldest state school in England, a long standing aim is for their pupils to have the ambition and confidence to achieve their dreams - and providing opportunities for pupils to become leaders is one way of achieving this. 

Daniel Bibbington, Head of Design and Technology at Beverley Grammar School, said: “We chose to deliver NCFE’s V Certs because we found that the qualifications provided more opportunities for pupils to engage in practical hands-on experience, in comparison with other vocational qualifications. 

“We’ve seen pupils of all ability groups, including SEN learners and Pupil Premium students, make very good progress on the course – more so than with their other subjects. I'd definitely recommend V Certs to other schools.” 

Laura Mulligan, Engineering Teacher at the school, added: “The learners have all found this course really interesting. We have mixed ability groups, and some learners are interested in pursuing engineering at a higher level, whereas others are more vocationally inclined and plan to seek out an apprenticeship route. V Certs give scope for both routes.” 

As a result of what they’ve learnt from their V Cert in Engineering, four learners from Beverley Grammar School have started a work experience placement with BAE Systems, a multinational company providing some of the world’s most advanced technology-led defence, aerospace and security solutions.
