Transport and logistics is one of the biggest sectors in the entire world, with a host of very different types of careers on offer. There is a high demand for people to work in the transport and logistics sector.
If you are an employer, you may also be able to get support.
Support available could include the following programmes:
- The ReAct programme can also help employers who wish to recruit an eligible individual with a wage subsidy of up to £3000, paid in 4 instalments over a 12-month period. The programme can also award a job-related training grant of up to 50% of the cost of training, up to a maximum of £1000 per new recruit. Visit Business Wales' React
- Personal Learning Accounts (PLAs) are also available to employers to help them upskill their staff to help businesses remain, and indeed become more, competitive in the face of the dual challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic and the UK decision to leave the European Union. Courses and qualifications for delivery through PLA are endorsed by Regional Skills Partnerships (RSP) to ensure they meet current or projected skills gaps and regional priority sectors.

- The training element of apprenticeships is funded by the Welsh Government, with the employer responsible for the wage costs and any additional training requirements. Visit Business Wales' Apprenticeships
- The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) Logistics Programme offers tailored support to the individual employer or sector based on an assessment of their requirements for entry skills. DWP works with Welsh Government and other partners to develop packages of support and funding which are assessed on a case-by-case basis
