Sector Training Overview- Driving
Driver recruitment support
Is your organisation struggling with recruiting drivers? Our cost-free recruitment and training service can help you find the right talent.
It is estimated that there is a shortfall of around 100,000 drivers in the UK. There was a shortage of drivers before the pandemic, however, the backlog of HGV driver tests and an ageing workforce have made it even more difficult for businesses to recruit drivers.
How can we help you recruit drivers?
When you partner with us, candidates we put forward for your vacancies will have received in-depth employment support, along with sector-specific training.
The topics we cover give candidates an overview of the driving sector, exploring the industries and functions within it.
A key part of our industry-specific training is preparing candidates with the skills and regulations required to work in the sector.
To ensure our candidates are as prepared as they can be we also cover:
- Communication skills, in particular the importance of active listening to ensure a positive working relationship.
- Transferable skills for candidates who are looking to upskill and become work-ready for a new sector.
- Equality and diversity training, including the Equality Act 2010 and the guiding principles within it.
- Health and safety requirements in the driving sector, including the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.
- Employability skills, with a focus on what employers in the driving sector are looking for when recruiting, as well as CV preparation.
