Onboard; a Ports and Logistics project looking at apprenticeships concludes.

The Onboard Project, co-funded by the EU Erasmus program completed its work in September 2019. Partners from Ireland, Portugal and the UK commenced work in late 2017 to establish an apprenticeships model focusing on Port and Logistics.

The Onboard Project worked with employers and training organisations to develop apprenticeships meeting the sector's future needs.

The increasing use of electronic data, autonomous systems and Artificial Intelligence will have a major impact on the way ports and logistics operate in the future particularly as the Blue Economy grows. Traditional jobs will become redundant but new roles will occur. Digital Skills will become increasingly important and staff with need to have the relevant IT skills linked with a knowledge of port and logistic operations.

To ensure the workforce has the appropriate skills to meet the new ways of working employers and training providers need to work together to develop suitable apprenticeship training.

The Project's final newsletter reports on the work undertaken and is available to view at the following link:
