Shipping News Feature UK – Forth Ports, which owns and operates eight British commercial ports, is doing its bit for the Year of Young people and during Apprentice Week (March 5 -9) has announced that the company will sponsor the Young Logistics Professional of the Year award at this year’s Multimodal event in May.

The industry award recognises a young professional who exemplifies education, skills, knowledge and attitude to become an exceptional supply chain professional of the future. Forth Ports says the award criteria fit perfectly with its own focus on skills development for young people already working within the industry and the workforce of the future.

Last year, Forth Ports supported an impressive 73 apprentices undertaking programmes covering a range of disciplines from business administration and operations through to management and leadership demonstrating the company’s commitment to apprenticeships as a key part of the company’s development and career structure. Commenting on the award sponsorship and Forth Ports apprentices, Jackie Anderson, HR Director at Forth Ports said:

“It is fitting that we sponsor this award which recognises the next generation of talent in our industry. At Forth Ports we invest significantly in our people at every level from apprentice to senior leader, helping us to deliver an excellent service to our customers both now and for the future. We wish everyone the best of luck for the award this year.”

Forth Ports skills development includes apprenticeships, further and higher education, VQs, professional accreditation, and continuous assessments run through the companies bespoke training academies in Tilbury and in Scotland.
