Skills Bootcamps for HGV drivers – national procurement and engagement event

Information from FE Week:

Skills bootcamps for heavy goods vehicle drivers are hoped to be on the road by November, the government has revealed.

An “accelerated, light touch” procurement of providers to train 3,000 new drivers is expected to launch this week and close on 22 October.

Advertising the training, recruiting learners and starting provision will have to be done swiftly to “start onboarding by November to tackle the sector challenges”, according to a prior information notice published today, though all this is only an “indicative” timetable.

A market engagement event is planned for 30 September where the DfE will discuss its plans to provide “road ready” drivers for employers.

Anyone interested in attending should email skills.bootcamps by 12.30pm on 29 September with the organisation name contact details and job titles for a maximum of two attendees.
