SfL launches standard of excellence for Driver CPC

Skills for Logistics has launched the Standard of Excellence Driver CPC, which is designed to enable employers to identify good training providers as well as benchmarking their in-house training schemes.

The standard has been developed following consultation with key logistics employers. They identified five key metrics based on high quality training and business benefit, which the Standard should include: trainer quality; course preparation and delivery; learning resources and environment; pre-and post-training delivery and a commitment to excellence.

Only providers who can demonstrate that they meet the Standard of Excellence in all five metrics will be able to use the kitemark.

SfL CEO Dr Ross Moloney said: “The launch of the Standard of Excellence marks the culmination of a six-month period of consultation with key employers, trade associations and training providers in the logistics sector.”

Skills for Logistics will maintain a database of all the training providers who have exhibited their excellence. Training providers will be able to use the logo in their marketing to demonstrate to employers that they are delivering high quality, tested and recognised training.
