Here you can read a range of case studies from established BIFA Members supporting this. You can also see top tips from existing apprentices as to why you should consider it.
My apprenticeship has given me a great platform for a career in logistics and provided a great alternative to University. I've learnt an immense amount from experienced colleagues and the positive feedback I've received from customers, both internally and externally.
Working in this industry is very challenging and exciting, the thrill of winning your first account and doing your first shipment is a great feeling. I would encourage anyone to work in this industry, it’s completely different to your standard admin job.
