1. Skills Survey 2019

Thank you for agreeing to complete this short survey. In doing so, you will enable us to conduct the first major study into how the Apprenticeship Levy has impacted the logistics sector. We believe this to be especially important in the lead up to Brexit. Don't worry if you can't answer every question, provide what you can. This research has been funded by the vocational charity UFI and a report will be shared to you in September if you opt in at the end.
