Toyota Material Handling has teamed up with North Warwickshire and Hinckley College to recruit and train apprentices.
The college is one of only two in the country to offer specialised forklift truck apprenticeships. It hosted an apprenticeship recruitment event, where candidates were invited to meet members of the training teams from Toyota and the College.
Apprentices will work in different Toyota locations across the country, and will study at the college in two week blocks five times a year.
While at the college they will be based at the dedicated fork lift truck training centre at Nuneaton’s Bermuda Park where they will engage in a range of training and work towards their technical certificate.
Ken Williams, training officer at Toyota said: “Successful apprenticeship programmes which deliver the very best training and opportunities to apprentices are built on strong working partnerships. We are working closely with the college to ensure that
the apprentices get a great start in their forklift truck careers.”
