Skills for Logistics urges employers to review skills needs

Skills for Logistics (SfL), the sector skills council for the freight logistics industries, is encouraging employers to review their skills requirements to ensure that the UK logistics industry maintains its competitiveness on a global platform.

SfL is co-sponsoring the Skills Zone which runs alongside the Commercial Vehicle Show and Automotive Trade Show at NEC, Birmingham from 24th to 26th April 2007 .

SfL believes the show will provide employers with the perfect opportunity to find out about skills development, regulatory training such as Driver CPC requirements and initiatives to support workforce diversity.

Ian Hetherington, Skills for Logistics chief executive, said: "Skills for Logistics is calling upon employers to take responsibility for the development of their staff. Lord Leitch's recent review of skills identified a real requirement for an employer-led system and SfL sees the CV Show as a real opportunity for employers to get involved in developing the future workforce of UK logistics.

"The logistics industry constantly battles against its perceived image which can put people off considering a career in it, however through the Skills Zone we are able to promote how professional the industry really is.

"The event also offers employers with an excellent opportunity to find out more about CPD and developments in training requirements whilst enabling them to feedback to their Sector Skills Council on their needs."
