RHA hails new proposals for lorry driver funding support

An improved funding package for apprentices in the transport sector has been proposed that will open up even more opportunities for smaller firms.

From April 2017, lorry driving apprentices will attract government support of up to £4,500, with an additional £2,000 depending on the age of the individual. Importantly, the funding obligation on smaller firms taking on 16-18 year olds has been reduced to nil.

This transforms the whole recruitment and training landscape of the road haulage and logistics industry, for those who are willing to invest in the drivers of the future.

Commenting, Road Haulage Association policy director Jack Semple said: “The government has listened to what the industry has said and has given a very positive response. The RHA has been arguing for quality-based funding that will drive up levels of recruitment from within the UK and quality of skills training and that is what the Department for Education has now proposed.”

Alongside the proposed package for new lorry drivers is increased support for traffic office and warehouse operative apprenticeships.

There is also assistance available for apprenticeships where the individual needs support with maths or English of £471 for each of the two subjects.

“This is a really exciting time for the industry,” Jack Semple continued. “The RHA will be working actively to bring these opportunities alive, not only for our large and medium-sized members but for the many thousands of owner-drivers and smaller hauliers who want to introduce newcomers to the industry, often their friends and relatives, in a way that gives them a really strong foundation and transferrable skills.”

For LGV drivers:
  • Up to £5,000 core funding per apprentice (made up of £4,500 maximum government contribution, where employers pay in £500). Includes driver training
  • £2,000 for those aged 16-18 at the start of the year-long apprenticeship
  • Nil co-investment for employers with fewer than 50 employees taking on 16-18 year olds
  • Co-investment of just 10% for those with 50+ employees who are not apprenticeship levy payers
  • Levy payers make no additional co-investment.

For traffic office (‘logistics and supply chain operator’):
  • Up to £3,000 core funding per apprentice (made up of £2,700 maximum government contribution, where employers pay in £300)
  • £2,000 for those aged 16-18 at the start of the year-long apprenticeship
  • Nil co-investment for employers with fewer than 50 employees taking on 16-18 year olds
  • Co-investment of just 10% for those with 50+ employees who are not apprenticeship levy payers
  • Levy payers make no additional co-investment.

For warehouse operatives:
  • Up to £3,000 core funding per apprentice (made up of £2,700 maximum government contribution, where employers pay in £300)
  • £2,000 for those aged 16-18 at the start of the year-long apprenticeship
  • Nil co-investment for employers with fewer than 50 employees taking on 16-18 year olds
  • Co-investment of just 10% for those with 50+ employees who are not apprenticeship levy payers
  • Levy payers make no additional co-investment.

  1. Testimony of Restoration with the help of Martinez Lexie(Lexieloancompany@yahoo.com OR +18168926958)..

    I have been in financial mess for the past months, I'm a single mum with kids to look after. My name is Renee Joan Rothell, and am from Ridley Park, Pennsylvania. A couple of weeks ago My friend visited me and along our discussion she told me about Mr Martinez Lexie of ( Lexieloancompany@yahoo.com ); that he can help me out of my financial situation, I never believed cause I have spend so much money on different loan lenders who did nothing other than running away with my money. She advised, I gave it a try because she and some of her colleagues were rescued too by this Godsent lender with loans to revive their dying businesses and paying off bills. so I mailed him and explain all about my financial situation and therefore took me through the loan process which was very brief and easy.. After that my loan application worth 78,000.00 USD was granted, all i did was to follow the processing and be cooperative and today I am a proud business owner sharing the testimony of God-sent Lender. You can as well reach him through the Company website: http://lexieloans.bravesites.com OR text: +18168926958

  3. SCAMMERS DRAINED AND RUINED ME FINANCIALLY AND LEFT ME HOMELESS BUT THANKS TO UP START LOAN (upstartloan@yahoo.com).//

    Greetings to everyone, Life they say is full of deceit. No torture and pain can be compare to what i Theresa L. Bernard experience in the hands of scammers, The most annoying part of it is that someone always post of receiving a loan from them which is nothing but lies and strategy to deceive and extort hard earn money from people. I was victimize several times because of that, After reading a post about them i end up trusting them without verifying, I lost more than $12,500 in the quest of obtaining a loan i sold my car defaulted in my bills but i keep on falling victim my life was a piece of trash full of mess. My kids dropped out of school, My bank denied me credit because my credit score was down already about leaving the bank with a broken heart a staff in the bank approach me and say that there is a financial institution called UP START LOAN that say yes even when banks and other financial institution says no. She advised me to give it a try to be honest i was so skeptical leaving the bank without saying a word to her. It was a month later when my eldest son was hospitalized looking up and down nothing to pay for his hospital bill devastated and confused and then i remember what the bank staff told me and i quickly went to the bank to plead with her and inquire on how to contact UP START LOAN and she gave me the details which are Email: ( upstartloan@yahoo.com ) OR call/ text customer service through +1(574) 301-1639 . After following due procedures and comply to their policy in less than 24 hours my credit of $25,000 got approved and transfer to me. I later apply for a home and startup business loan of $350,000 which i receive and i obtain a home at 2076 Simon St, Philadelphia, PA 19124. UP START LOAN is the best. ( upstartloan@yahoo.com or text/call customer service +1(574) 301-1639. Indeed they say yes when your bank and other financial institution says no.
