Skills for Logistics conference focuses on CPD

Skills for Logistics, the Sector Skills Council for the freight logistics industries, delivered its second employer conference to more than 100 delegates at Towcester Racecourse, Northamptonshire.

Topics for discussion included the image of the industry, competence in logistics, qualifications, the need for vocational degrees, the impact of coaching and mentoring on the workforce and the organisation, and the need for training at senior management level.

Skills for Logistics presented its vision for Continuous Professional Development and the regional delivery model for training supply across the UK.

Ian Hetherington, chief executive of Skills for Logistics, said: "The conference offers companies the opportunity to find out what is happening within their industry in terms of skills development and training provision - along with the work carried out by Skills for Logistics, but equally as important, it provides those working in the industry the chance to share their experiences with each other."
