March 2015 update
This month’s transport and logistics sector update includes the Training and Assessing qualifications in the Logistics Sector, the Edexcel Level 1 Award and Certificate in Safe Road Skills and Attitudes qualification and updates on new developments in 2015.
Training and Assessing Competencies in the Logistics Sector
Did you know that Pearson has a range of training and assessing qualifications which can be delivered alongside other sector-specific qualifications?
The qualifications provide learners with additional skills, which are required to progress within the workplace. These include the following qualifications:
Pearson BTEC Level 1 Award/Certificate in Safe Road Skills and Attitudes (QCF)
The Pearson BTEC Level 1 Award and Certificate in Safe Road Skills and Attitudes (QCF) were developed in partnership with the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency. The aim of the qualifications is to make a positive contribution to road safety by educating road users and changing attitudes, building a sense of personal responsibility and promoting a mature attitude to risk and safety issues. The qualifications can be used alongside licence acquisition with the Certificate size allowing learners to sit a shorter version of the Theory Test for Drivers. The shorter version of the test is called the Abridged Theory Test. For more information on these qualifications, please visit the MySkills Safe Road Skills and Attitudes specification page.
Pearson BTEC Level 1 Award in Principles of Carrying and Delivering Goods by Road (QCF)
We are looking at amending this qualification. Interested in this qualification and would like to put your views forward with how we can amend it?
