Drivers graduate from Cemex Logistics Apprenticeship scheme

Published by
World Cement,


FORS has congratulated the second group of drivers graduating from Cemex’s Logistics Apprenticeship scheme, which aims to train new drivers and recruit a younger generation to the industry. The graduates have now become full-time Cemex drivers delivering cement and aggregates across the country.

A combination of an aging professional driver workforce and a lack of young drivers being recruited has led to a driver shortage in the UK. The apprenticeship scheme, which recruits individuals aged 18 – 23, helps to address this issue.

The programme is run in association with Cemex’s apprentice training provider, Systems Training, and offers a pathway to gain the nationally recognised Apprenticeship Level 2 (QCF) qualification in Driving Goods Vehicles and an LGV category C or C+E licence, so that apprentices can take on the role of LGV Driver within the company.
