East Midlands Logistics Academy opens

The East Midlands regional hub of the Logistics Academy has opened at West Nottinghamshire College.

The Academy is the sixth of nine hubs being set up across England, in a move to boost access to logistics skills, and raise the image of the sector.

It will provide industry-relevant training and learning programmes to employers in the logistics sector, and will be led by West Nottinghamshire College and Lincolnshire-based Denby Transport, with support from Skills for Logistics.

The Logistics Academy will be managed by the college’s logistics centre co-ordinator Craig Done.

West Nottinghamshire College principal and chief executive, Asha Khemka OBE, said: “Logistics is one of the key industries keeping the UK economy afloat and the introduction of the Logistics Academy East Midlands is a welcome development for this region.”
