The Level 6 Advanced Diploma is aimed at managers aspiring to move to more senior, strategic roles within the logistics and transport professional sectors. The qualification is open entry and as such is also suitable for graduates in other disciplines who are entering the sector for the first time, although Learners would benefit from having some prior knowledge of the logistics and transport industry at a strategic level.
