Logistics Learning Alliance. Can Get You Qualified?

If this is a career option for you and you need the right professional qualifications then Logistics Learning Alliance (LL A) is an organisation you should be talking to. The company understands the military and the needs of service leavers and provides training in logistics and supply chain management.

As one of the leading training companies in Logistics in the UK the company offers exceptional levels of training both for individuals and for organisations, globally. Flexible learning from a friendly, professional team, is focused on the individual. The No-Examination route to a professional qualification builds on your experience and expertise. Award winning management skills development programmes are designed to both challenge and develop your existing skills.

Programmes cover the supply chain, from Sourcing and Procurement, through Production Planning and Inventory Management, to Warehousing and Distribution and at all levels from new entrant to senior management. The introductory course is aimed at people new to the concept of supply chain, and people working in other areas who need to understand the supply chain and how it fits the objectives of the business. Courses are also offered at intermediate and advanced levels leading to CILT (UK) and IoSCM qualifications. There are additional courses in safety awareness and Humanitarian Supply Chain and Logistics Certification, an option which is particularly popular with service personnel.

The company is a preferred supplier to the Career Transition Partnership. LLA managing director, Peter Jones Jones, said: “With our experience in the military, humanitarian and commercial areas of supply chain, we believe that we have a unique insight into the recruitment requirements of companies and humanitarian organisations.

“We want to help improve your employability in the commercial sector. For individuals the completion of a formal qualification will confirm and give approbation of their experience and achievements to date. LLA can help service leavers gain that advantage by ensuring that you embark on the most suitable subject and level of programme for your own personal needs.

“We want to encourage companies to recruiting staff whose experience is backed by a formal qualification, so they are working with a recognised benchmark, that will add value to the company and improve performance.”

The company also offers a variety of learning methods including part-time online e-learning process which allows you to choose where and when you wish to study at the time and place to suit you. Each course or unit is designed to be completed part-time over a number of weeks, but flexibility is built-in allowing you to control the pace at which you complete the programme. Programmes can be fast-tracked for company groups to ensure skills are rapidly assimilated into everyday practice.

The company believes that Studying at home or by Distance Learning has the benefit of allowing you to develop your career without having to leave employment. It also means that you can apply new knowledge and insights to your working life while you are still studying. It gives you the opportunity to study when you want to so you can plan your learning programme around your other commitments. A recent study showed that over 70% of learning occurs in the workplace. Our programmes are designed to mimic the workplace, thus providing a known environment and the opportunity to show your new skills in a risk free environment.”

Peter Jones concluded: “As part of our commitment to a full customer service, we provide access to a leading career coach who would be happy to advise on your next career move, how to tailor your CV to specific job applications and preparation for that all-important interview.”
