Congratulations to Post Person, Alicia Roberts, for successfully completing the Foundation Apprenticeship in Driving Goods Vehicles! Alicia’s apprenticeship programme was tailored to include funding for her to upskill her driving licence to a Category C licence. In November 2022, following effective training received from our associate training provider, Gatewen Training Services Limited, Alicia triumphantly passed her LGV Category C licence.
Alicia has enjoyed her LGV driving experience so much that she has decided to drive forward and upskill to a Category C+E licence. Alicia has decided to progress onto the Level 3 Apprenticeship in Driving Goods Vehicles where LRC Training will part-fund her LGV Category C+E licence.
Alicia said, “LGV licence acquisition is expensive, I wouldn’t have been able to fully fund my own LGV training at this time. I am grateful to our CWU Lead Union Learning Representative, Adrian Prins, for making me aware of the LGV funding via the Foundation Apprenticeship in Driving Goods Vehicles. The apprenticeship opportunity allowed me upskill my driving licence whilst helping me develop my driving knowledge and skills. The apprenticeship process has helped me become a confident, professional LGV driver. The apprenticeship has provided me with recognised industry qualifications that I can present to future employers. The support received from all involved has been amazing, I’m particularly grateful for the guidance and support received from my vocational assessor, Wayne Brown. I would recommend this apprenticeship to anyone wanting a career in driving.”
