International Freight Forwarding Specialist Apprenticeship

Since mid-2016, BIFA have been supporting a group of employers developing a relevant apprenticeship in the Freight Forwarding sector.

we are delighted to announce that the standard for the International Freight Forwarding Specialist Apprenticeship scheme was approved on 20 April 2018 and is now available for delivery.

Set at Level 3 (A Level) with a minimum duration of 18 months, the new apprenticeship will provide students with core knowledge and skills including; industry awareness, customs procedures and commercial. At the beginning of the programme, apprentices will also be given one of three pathways; air freight, ocean freight or road freight, to reflect the focus of our member’s operations. Whichever pathway apprentices take, specific knowledge and skills will be acquired in addition to the three mandatory modules.
