The Level 2 Apprenticeship Standard for Warehouse Operatives was designed by employer
representatives of the supply chain and logistics industry, and is suitable for Apprentices employed
in a wide variety of organisations. This Apprenticeship provides the foundation knowledge, skills and
experience for the role of qualified Warehouse Operative. Apprentices will learn warehouse
practices including 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 housekeeping. The Apprentice will also learn about using
warehouse equipment, machinery and vehicles, health and safety practices and regulations.
Warehouse Operatives communicate with a wide range of people, colleagues, third party carriers,
other organisations and customers. They should have a passion for meeting customer’s expectations
by providing a quality service that encourages repeat business. Individuals in this role will be highly
competent in using industry-recognised systems and associated services (e.g. Traffic/Warehouse
Management Systems). They will be able to work under pressure to tight deadlines.
The completion of this Appenticeship Standard will require monthly training visits from a qualified
IPS Trainer to develop the Apprentice’s skills and in addition to this, some training based at our
centre to progress the build of the portfolio and prepare for End Point Assessment. Throughout the
process, Apprentices will undergo regular testing of under pinning knowledge through assessment
and will require employer involvement at review stages and at the end of this qualification when reaching EPA.
