International Women’s Day is on the 8th March 2020 and is held globally, to celebrate the achievements of women. The day also signals the necessity to increase women’s equality.
2 Start training operates within a largely male dominated industry, therefore having women instructors is not necessarily seen as the norm. However, we currently have 4 female instructors covering forklift, classroom-based courses such as CPC and driver training, right the way from B+E to C+E. 2 of the 5 directors of the business are female and we have a total of 7 women at 2 Start Training which makes up approximately 20% of the total workforce.
We are also proud to support women wanting to enter into a predominantly male-orientated industry. We are seeing many more females taking HGV driver training courses as the logistics industry ramp up the inclusion of women within driving roles.
