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.
