Looking to hire an apprentice or upskill your workforce?
Our new apprenticeship scheme will provide you with all the knowledge and support to help you enrol one or many apprentices for our Urban Driver (level 2) category C apprenticeship course. This course enables an apprentice to qualify from their car licence up to category a C (rigid) licence with the full legal entitlement to drive professionally, as well as meeting the requirements of the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education standards.
The programme begins with an initial meeting with our apprenticeships team who will explain the process to you, and culminates with the completion of the endpoint assessment. During the programme, the candidate will complete all of their licence acquisition tasks to get qualified to drive (this can be completed at any time during the programme, so doesn’t mean it will take 12 months to get a qualified driver on your workforce), throughout the programme the apprentice will complete all additional training required to reach the level 2 standard, and be guided throughout by our dedicated apprenticeships team – who will be in communication regularly with both you and your apprentices, and available for any guidance needed throughout.
Our team is on hand to help guide you through the process and the required documents to help you and your apprentice start training as fast as possible and with the minimum impact on you and your business.
Our apprenticeship courses are intended for employers with an apprentice already working for their company.
