OnBoard - Digital Skills for the Port and Logistics Sector

OnBoard is an EU project with partners in Ireland, Portugal and the UK. Focusing on Port and Logistics it is working with employers and training organisations to develop apprenticeships meeting the sector’s future needs.

In early 2018 a study of apprenticeships in the partner countries commenced. Following interviews with sector members 'Digital Skills' was identified as a key area. The growing use of electronic data, autonomous systems and Artificial Intelligence will have a major impact on the way ports and logistics operate in the future.

The supply chain will become more 'transparent' and require company collaboration to use the information effectively. Staff will need to have the relevant IT skills linked with a knowledge of port and logistic operations. This will be vital to the development and operation of the systems.

To meet this requirement OnBoard has produced profiles and training curricula for the following courses which will be validated in early 2019:

* 'Technician on Information Technology applied to ports and logistics' (EQF Level 4)
* 'Specialist Technician on Information Technology applied to port and logistics' (EQF Level 5)

If you are a member of a company or training organisation who would like to assist OnBoard with the validation or require further information, please email David Rae at dr@mseuk.org

OnBoard is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme. Further information is available on: http://www.onboard-project.eu/
