The Logistics Sector, Careers Film and Resources

Our new film, an introduction to the logistics sector, is now available!  This short film film can be shown in assemblies, lessons, or to small groups of young people to raise awareness of one of our key local industries! The film features local student Hana Pearson from South Charnwood High School talking about the sector.

Many local employers and organisations helped in the collation of this film, and we would particularly like to thank:

East Midlands Airport,  Magna Park,  EMEG Segro Roxhill,  Amazon,  Neovia,  DPD, Data Academy, Dave Evans (for train freight images), and of course, Hana Pearson and South Charnwood High School. The film was developed to raise awareness of one of our key sectors for jobs. For more information email anna.cyhan@llep.org.uk

We have a lesson plan to help to raise awareness of the logistics sector which schools, colleges and advisers who work with young people or adults can download here.
