Apprenticeships & Traineeships

ATC is committed to building a strong team who share the company’s commitment to our customers and colleagues. We are committed to investing in the development of our team over through the duration of their careers with us. ATC is proud to embrace new opportunities to bring passionate individuals into the company and industry and is working with our industry partners and their academic affiliates to support apprenticeships and traineeships. These apprenticeships and traineeships provide new entry paths into the industry, and we are currently supporting two such programmes, including the recently launched Logistics Associate apprenticeship.

Logistics Associate Apprenticeship

The Logistics Associate Apprenticeship is a Level 6 Higher Certificate in Logistics. It’s the first non-craft apprenticeship to be offered by Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) and the first of the industry-led programmes to be delivered by DIT School of Management. The consortium of businesses and professional bodies supporting the programme includes the Freight Transport Associate Ireland (FTAI), The Irish International Freight Association (IIFA), Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT), the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers Ireland (IPICS), and The Supply Chain Management Institute.

The programme will develop the skills necessary for a Logistics Associate, who is responsible for coordinating the movement of goods in a company, including the planning and coordinating of all warehousing and transportation activities in the supply chain.

Those interested in finding out more about the new apprenticeship standard should contact FTA Ireland at or email

ATC is currently recruiting an Apprentice Transport Planner as part of the apprenticeship, our application form is here: Apprentice Transport Planner and should be completed in addition to the contact with the FTAI above.

HGV Driver Traineeship

FTA Ireland recently announced that SOLAS have given approval for FTA Ireland & ETB Baldoyle / Dun Laoghaire/Rathdown to develop and launch an ‘industry led’ HGV Driver Traineeship.

ATC have joined the ‘traineeship consortium’ which will oversee the content, and shape of the programme that will be delivered to industry. FTAI expect that this programme will be ready for delivery in November 2018.

Further information will be provided as these programmes launch.
