Here at Pearson TQ, we’re experienced providers of training to the logistics and transport sector.

We deliver and assess 12 apprenticeship frameworks to 1,800 Royal Logistic Corps soldiers, for example, and have improved success rates by 29% since October 2015.

And as part of Pearson, the world’s largest learning company, we have access to an unrivalled range of resources and expertise that helps us to create inspiring course content for learners of all ages and levels.

Skills shortages

Thanks to our position as an experienced provider of transport training, we’re uniquely placed to help provide solutions for some of the biggest problems faced by the sector.

  • A large proportion of the 2.2 million people in the UK logistics sector are thought to be older workers who may not have the skills required by modern business practices. 
  • With projects such as Crossrail and the HS2 high-speed rail link in development, transport workers will soon require a whole new skillset to cope with different techniques and processes. Existing staff will come under pressure to adapt, while demand for new recruits will also be on the rise.
  • Skills shortages in the industry mean many businesses are failing to make the most of increased investment in areas such as transport infrastructure.

Our training solutions

If the transport and logistics sector is to successfully adapt to the changing environment, it’s essential that workers have the right skills and expertise.

Whether it’s apprenticeships, vocational training or education for 16+ learners, Pearson TQ provides a fully managed service that covers the whole of the training cycle.

That could include carrying out a full consultation with you to build up a comprehensive picture of your requirements before designing and delivering an engaging learning programme.

We’re also specialists in bringing about training transformation through cutting-edge learning techniques and technology, such as virtual and augmented reality.

We also manage the assessment and provision of accredited qualifications, as well as measuring all learning outcomes to make it easy for you to track your return on investment.

We can take over the operations of large-scale educational and training establishments or work with high numbers of staff in all kinds of sectors either on or off site.

Not only do we work closely with teachers and trainers, but we also make sure we listen to the needs of employers so we can really focus our course content and programmes on their skills requirements.

This way, we can ensure that businesses have the talent they need to grow and evolve at the same time as giving learners themselves the best chance of being able to enjoy long and fulfilling careers.
