We are excited to announce that Ford & Slater’s DAF Apprenticeship Programme has been shortlisted for ‘Apprenticeship of the Year’ at the Motor Transport Awards, 2018.
Ford & Slater has been a passionate supporter of the DAF Apprenticeship Programme since its inception in 1995 with 200 Ford & Slater apprentices going through the programme in that time. Building on this, in the last 18 months we have put increased focus on developing our apprentice programme through the appointment of a full-time Apprenticeship Co-ordinator, increased marketing and recruitment activity and establishing our ‘Apprenticeship Panel’.
The result of these efforts is a record number of applications to the programme last year, 52 current apprentices throughout our ten locations and a 100% apprenticeship pass rate over the last two years.
We are thrilled to be nominated for this award alongside Pallet Force, Royal Mail Fleet and Ryder –all businesses working towards the common goal of developing the next generation of transport professionals, something which is of vital importance for our industry.
We wish all shortlisted finalists luck in their respective categories. See you at the awards!
