International Women’s Day
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.
