The Driver Academy is a partnership between Specialised Training Services and Manpower Group UK, combining industry-leading services from each sector to provide a smoother and more efficient LGV training process. Being able to view a real-time pipeline of drivers up to three months in advance provides an overview that allows for recruitment needs to be tackled in a precise and targeted manner. By reducing the time it takes for drivers to be identified and recruited, as well as the costs associated with doing so, the process is made much more efficient.

What’s the Aim?

The primary aim of the Driver Academy is to combine our extensive experience in LGV training and Manpower’s recruitment know-how and large database of drivers across the UK. Together we are able to provide a one-stop solution for UK companies who are looking to train or recruit drivers to meet their business demands. Having all elements of the process under one roof makes the process swifter and easier for companies who struggle to train or replace their LGV driver workforce.
