FTA partners City & Guilds to provide fleet management qualification

Mar 31, 2015
The Freight Transport Association (FTA) has announced that it has entered into a partnership arrangement with City & Guilds to provide fleet management qualifications.
The Association believes that the transport industry has been ‘overlooked by government’ for funding to support vocational training because of the absence of a nationally recognised qualification framework.
  
James Hookham, FTA Managing Director of Policy and Communications said: “FTA’s partnership with City & Guilds will aim to fill the void in skills development opportunities in the logistics sector.”
 
As a leading vocational education and training organisation, City & Guilds internationally recognised qualifications are valued by employers, and help individuals develop their talents and abilities for future progression.    
 
The first of the FTA – City & Guilds qualifications will be for Commercial Vehicle Fleet Management and a level 3 qualification, equivalent to current Transport Manager CPC, and will be launched during 2015.  FTA and City & Guilds will be announcing development of further qualifications for the logistics industry during 2015.
 
Mr Hookham added: “FTA is delighted to be working with City & Guilds, through this unique partnership we will provide learning excellence with vocational training industry standards which will help bring the logistics sector in to the 21st century.”
