Freight Forwarding Apprentice Cara passes with flying colours

Cara Snowden is working towards her ‘International Freight Forwarding Specialist’ NVQ Level 3 Qualification after successfully completing her Level 2 and a host of other qualifications.


Cara’s impressive list of qualifications achieved include:

  • Intermediate Level Apprenticeship in ICO Level 2 in International Trade & Logistics Operations (RQF)
  • ICQ Level 2 in Employee Rights & Responsibilities in the Logistics Industry (RQF)
  • City & Guilds ICT at Level 2 Outsource Training & Development
  • BIFA Introduction to Export & Import

The International Freight Forwarding Specialist qualification also includes taking part in a five day BIFA course and gaining a BTEC Intermediate Award in Customs Export and Import Procedures.


My main role is within the contracts department and this level 3 qualification has already helped me to extend more into the operational department. I’m currently in training for sea freight operations and I’ve been appointed the main contact for two customers. Working alongside really experienced freight forwarders helps me develop my knowledge and working with a wide range of customer needs, is great for my personal development.


I’m joining the BIFA Young Forwarder Network which will provide me with an even greater opportunity to learn from professionals within the industry as well as networking with my peers.
