CEVA, one of the world’s leading supply chain management firms, has chosen TRS Training to deliver an organisation-wide continuous improvement training programme. Up to sixty of CEVA Logistics’ employees will be enrolling on our Improvement Technician Apprenticeship programme in 2021.
Operational excellence at CEVA
CEVA employs 78,000 people across 1,000 facilities in more than 160 countries. The company is committed to delivering operational excellence in contract logistics and freight management. The Improvement Technician Apprenticeship programme is a recognised vehicle for embedding the principles of continual improvement into company philosophy and operations. TRS Training is proud to be supporting CEVA to meet their objectives by providing their staff with training and development services.
CEVA’s employees will be doing either a level 3 Improvement Technician apprenticeship or a level 4 Improvement Practitioner apprenticeship, depending on their current job role and responsibilities. Initially, 15 staff members will be starting on the industry-standard training programmes. Subsequently, up to 45 more employees will enrol during 2021.
Six Sigma Training
As part of their training, the employees will be learning about the Six Sigma principles. To explain, these are a revered set of techniques and tools for process improvement. Individuals can achieve three Six Sigma competence levels: yellow belt, green belt and black belt (highest). Through TRS’s Improvement Technician Apprenticeship, CEVA employees will be aiming to achieve yellow belt, and eventually green belt status.
Furthermore, based across the UK, the enrollees will acquire knowledge to effectively equip them to carry out technical improvement roles within CEVA. In particular, they will develop competence in change management, process mapping and benchmarking.
TRS trainers will deliver the course using blended learning. In other words, a mix of face-to-face or virtual classroom learning, practical on the job training, and work shadowing. The TRS trainer will also review progress, along with the employer, and provide one-to-one support. Also, the employees will have a workplace mentor. This is an existing employee who models the professional behaviour required to carry out improvement technician roles at CEVA.
The group will complete the apprenticeships during a 14-18 month period. After completing the Improvement Technician Apprenticeship, employees will be qualified and have the skills to carry out improvement and quality roles. If appropriate to their job roles, they can progress onto an apprenticeship in management.
