The British International Freight Association (BIFA) who has been encouraging an employer group behind a specific Apprenticeship Standard for an International Freight Forwarding Operative, now calls on the community to get right behind it.
The group has recently submitted an Expression of Interest (EOI) – but before the Department for Education make their final decision and as part of the assessment process – they invite comments on proposals to develop new Apprenticeship Standards, before a decision is made on whether to approve them for further development.
Robert Keen, BIFA director general, says:
“Not only do we need to attract more young people to the industry, but it is vital that we have an apprenticeship that is relevant to their day-to-day work.
“The group have done some great work to get to the EOI point, now it is really important we show our support to the submission – which will greatly benefit our industry – by getting as many people to complete this online survey as possible.”
The deadline is Sunday 5th February and it can be accessed here.
