Degree aims to bring more young people in to logistics

A major new initiative designed to attract, encourage and increase the numbers of talented young personnel joining the logistics sector will guarantee a graduate job after the completion of a four year course.

The scheme, jointly launched this month by the University of Huddersfield and the Novus Trust, will result in a BSc degree in Supply Chain and Logistics, and will feature mentoring throughout the course, holiday work at the end of the first year, industry placements in the third year, and a guaranteed graduate job on completion after meeting the qualifying criteria.

The scheme, the brainchild of Andy Kaye, CEO of leading supply chain recruitment agency BiS Henderson, will be piloted from September 2013 at the University of Huddersfield, and is organised by the Novus Trust, a consortium of major logistics operators.  Novus will steer the pilot initiative, which is managed by The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport in the UK (CILT).
