LGV Driver Apprenticeship

Top grade Class 1 drivers earn over £40,000 per year which I’m working towards

Danny Jackson, Aldi

Case Study

 "When I first started the programme I was assigned a mentor at Aldi who is a driver himself. This meant I was being supervised and supported by one key person who had the right skills to do it.”

During the first few months Danny learnt about powertrucks loading/unloading, ensuring the load was secure. Then he started his Class 2 (Cat C) training. For a week Danny was a driver’s buddy which he thoroughly enjoyed, he went to the stores to learn what to do with the delivery etc.  After a few months Danny passed his Class 2 licence and progressed onto Class 1 training (C+E). 

 

“Now I’ve passed my Class 1 as well I’m thrilled. It’s the licence I’ve always wanted and you can’t get much better than that. To Aldi it means a lot because there is a shortage of Class 1 drivers so I can do my driving straight away."

"During my progression at Aldi I’ve seen a significant increase in my salary. My new contract is due where I’ll be earning around £28,000 per year. Top grade Class 1 drivers earn over £40,000 per year so I’m working towards that.”

“I would recommend going through the apprenticeship scheme, the training programme is great and together Aldi and Mantra has got the best out of me. It has definitely improved my skills and employability. Plus, with the shortage in Class 1 drivers I know I’ve got a job for life.”
