Development Spotlight: Glass Related Distribution and Warehousing

In this month’s Development Spotlight we take a look at two upcoming qualifications for the glass sector.

The IQ Level 2 NVQ Certificate in Glass and Glass Related Distribution and Warehousing is aimed at individuals who undertake activities in the distribution and warehousing of glass and glass related products. This could include those involved in receiving products, storing them in the warehouse and handing over goods to customers; either in the organisation’s premises or by delivery vehicle.

The content consists of three mandatory units which cover the basic functions, safety and standard equipment of a warehouse, how to work effectively with colleagues in a warehouse environment and the necessary health and safety requirements that must be observed. Learners then have the opportunity to diversify with a wide range of optional units that cover issues such as the correct methods to handle and store the glass, how to conduct quality checks and how to prepare products for delivery.

This range of nine optional units also gives the added advantage of making the qualification a useful asset for those who work in any warehousing environment, broadening its appeal beyond the glass sector.

Registrations on this qualification will cost £50 and we anticipate that it will be live and available to centres within the next two weeks.

Following on from the Level 2, IQ are also currently developing the Level 3 NVQ Certificate in Glass and Glass Related Distribution and Warehousing to enable learners to progress. The Level 3 is designed for those who are looking to take on additional responsibilities within the warehouse setting.
