The CILT(UK) Awarding Organisation

The CILT(UK) Awarding Organisation

Providing awarding services across logistics, transport and supply chain operations

The CILT(UK) Awarding Organisation (CILT(UK) AO) offers awarding services across logistics, transport and supply chain operations including qualification development, assessment, certification and validation accreditation.

As part of CILT(UK), the Chartered membership body for those individuals and organisations involved in the movement of goods, people and their associated supply chain operations. 

The CILT(UK) AO is guided by the CILT(UK) Competency Framework which provides information on the required professional competencies in logistics, transport and global supply chain operations. 

We use the framework to structure our awarding services in both the development and delivery of both regulated and professionally recognised qualifications as well as when we accredit degrees and learning programmes.

The framework is the core which runs through all of our awarding services, aligning them to the professional institute and recognised standards.

Measuring Levels of Skill, Knowledge and Experience

Knowledge levels relate to both academic levels and vocational competence levels. The workplace application descriptors help to understand what level of competence a person needs based on the level of accountability required for a task or role. 

Seniority does not equate to advanced knowledge and experience in every task that a person oversees. For example, a senior manager in an organisation could have level 6 skills, knowledge and experience in core workplace competencies and level 3 in a number of technical areas, with enhanced awareness in others. 

Taking this further, a Warehouse Manager will not necessarily have insight into the technical specifics of every task carried out in an operation. They might be responsible for ensuring that all tasks are carried out correctly, and so need an awareness of how each task fits into the bigger picture, but they do not need to be experts in every one.

The framework shows three competency types: awareness, operational and strategic. 

Awareness is useful to increase knowledge of other departments or areas of the profession, and may help better operational decisions to be made. 

Operational covers the practical tasks and actions needed to deliver output. In this framework, each operational competency can relate to level 3 through to level 5 dependent on the level of accountability needed or the level of skills and experience held. 

Strategic focuses on research and strategic planning.

Degree and Programme Accreditation

CILT(UK) supports the development of degree programmes with an element of work placement/experience.

We have developed our degree accreditation scheme to recognise those undergraduate and postgraduate degrees that offer students the knowledge and practical skills most valued by employers.

CILT(UK) AO Accredited degrees align with the professional body's Competency Framework to ensure the relevance of the degree content with the professional sectors represented by CILT(UK). 

The purpose of our degree accreditation is: to support higher education institutes in developing graduates that can help the profession address the talent requirements of our profession.

We aim to help students make informed choices about what different courses are available, what is covered in them and the approach to learning, to help them with their future career prospects.

We encourage experience `in the field' and many of the programmes we accredit offer this element which is essential to gaining skills that are crucially important to employers seeking to recruit graduates.
