On Thursday 29 October, RTITB provided Dormston School in Sedgley, near Dudley, with a lorry from its Instructor Training Academy in Telford for the day, and experienced RTITB instructor, Howard Moore, was on hand to speak to the students about career opportunities available in the logistics industry.

Students were given the opportunity to look around the lorry and learn about the safety aspects of a career in lorry driving. They also asked questions about other opportunities in the profession, and had the chance to be taken for a drive on the open road.

The principle aim of National Lorry Week, organised by RHA (Road Haulage Association), is to make the general public more aware of the essential role the logistics and road haulage industry performs and how its performance affects every aspect of the economy and people’s lives.

RTITB embraced National Lorry Week as an opportunity to help combat the driver shortage crisis currently faced by the industry, by educating students about their chance to embark on a rewarding career in logistics, which offers the chance to progress further and achieve a host of vocational skills.

“We hope that by taking part in National Lorry Week at Dormston School, we have raised awareness in the local community of opportunities in the logistics sector and encouraged the next generation of logistics professionals into a flourishing career,” says Laura Nelson, Managing Director of RTITB. “As the leading workplace transport training regulatory and standards setting body, it is also important to RTITB to have had the opportunity to instil in pupils the importance of quality training to ensure their future success and safety in the industry.”
