Sharon Salt, Warehouse Manager for Eddie Stobart, has become the first person to complete the UKWA Warehouse Manager CPC qualification. Here she is collecting her certificate alongside Peter Ward, CEO of UKWA, and Adrian Leigh, her LLA tutor.
The course, consisting of twenty individual units across management of warehouse operations and management of people, requires 80 guided learning hours, a total of 160 GLH for the qualification, all delivered by distance learning with the option of attendance at a face-to-face workshop.
Sharon said: "I’m thrilled to be the first person within the logistics industry to pass this new course. I have an extremely busy working life but the distance learning enabled me to complete the course in small sections and at a time that suited me. The content is really relevant to my role and encompasses all aspects of managing a warehouse. It has also given me lots of food for thought as I start to think about introducing new ways of working within the warehousing sector.”
"Having joined Eddie Stobart in 1994 as a warehouse operative, I’ve always been based at our Bardon distribution centre where the site sits on an area of 690,000 square feet and can hold 108,000 pallets. I’ve had the opportunity to progress my career and today, I am now managing 21 first line managers and supervisors, who like me, are all working towards gaining their qualifications. They’re already engaged with the online training and their feedback has also been really positive. I’m looking forward to celebrating with them all when they pass.”
