DHL’s military employability programme underway

DHL’s military employability programme underway

The first course of DHL’s Military Employability Programme, with the Career Transition Partnership (CTP) launched in Rugby.

Attending participants have completed an initial five-day training programme, involving a mixture of classroom and practical exercises, and are now mid-way through a 12 day attachment to DHL, undertaking commercial driving duties.

The course will end with three days of employability skill development, screening and full time job identification for those successfully passing the course.

Tim Slater, managing director of Transport UK&I at DHL Supply Chain, said: “The training to date has been a real success, with participants developing their core skills and driving expertise for the commercial world.

“We hope the real-world experience they gain will support their future career options, with the prospect of a full-time job with DHL for those who meet the required standard.”

The service leavers are working towards their Driver Qualification Card (DQC) and will gain experience for their Certificate to Work (CtW) portfolio, a nationally-recognised qualification for professional drivers launched recently.
