BIFA does not manage the apprenticeship programme, so you will need an ATA to do this for you.

Apprentice Training Providers (ATAs)

The companies detailed below are delivering the International Freight Forwarding standard and they all have good UK coverage, irrespective of their location. In addition, they are also embedding our one-day Introduction course and our BTEC Customs qualification into their programmes. Some may be able to help with recruitment and any questions you may have regarding funding as well.
