LGV apprenticeship funding: a ‘game changer’, says RHA05 June 2017

The Road Haulage Association is urging operators to take advantage of government funding to train HGV drivers to C+E level, calling it “a game changer”.

“Some firms have said the new trailblazer apprenticeship is not for them – until they find out that it can take new recruits through to driving 44-tonne vehicles,” says Colin Snape, RHA deputy director of policy.

“Firms should realise that the funding of £4,500 (up to £5,000 for firms with fewer than 50 employees or levy payers) is suitable for their businesses. A higher level of funding is available for firms taking on young drivers.”

The RHA is concerned that many hauliers and even some training providers are unaware that they can train for the articulated lorry C+E licence as well as the C-licence for rigid trucks.
