How long will the Apprenticeship Framework take to complete?

Drivers will be able to complete their Apprenticeship Framework and Driver CPC hours, within approximately twelve months, depending on experience and work commitments.  The trainer will want to meet with yourself, and your drivers to understand how they operate and how they can demonstrate working practices to industry standards under the guidance of the Skills for Logistics Council.

What does the Driving Goods Vehicle Apprenticeship consist of?

The DGV Framework covers a series of Pathways, which match different types of Lorries – Artic, Rigid, Vans.  It includes the following:

  • National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) – This measures competence and knowledge against the industry standards via work based observations / discussions and work booklets.
  • Employment Responsibilities and Rights:  This is achieved through learner discussions and a work booklet.
  • The allocated trainer will be required to undertake observations with the drivers.
  • Functional Skills in Maths and English - The drivers will be required to complete level 1, online or paper based functional skills tests in Maths and English.  We will offer full support and training where necessary, based on the individual needs of the driver. (Drivers with Maths and English qualification equating to A*-C levels achieved within the last 5 years, will be exempt from this component)
