Hull College is currently in the process of developing a Higher Apprenticeship in Express Logistics. The purpose of this paper is to present a case study of how the programme is being developed and challenges that have arisen.
The information provided in this case study is drawn from the organisation's own experience in developing a new higher apprenticeship framework. It expands on developments to date and challenges faced.
The development of a higher apprenticeship in express logistics is based on previously successful delivery of a Foundation Degree in Express Logistics. The creation of a higher apprenticeship as a progression route has significant benefits but also raises a number of challenges, including design of the framework, incorporating professional accreditation, and design and management of assessment.
The paper is based on the author's own experience and research and employer consultation. It presents a case study of an apprenticeship programme specific to the author's organisation.
