ENVIRONMENTAL and land services provider, NWH Group, has committed £500,000 investment in its own unique HGV driver apprenticeship scheme for the next five years and beyond.

Run in conjunction with training group GTG, NWH hopes to recruit and train 80 HGV driver apprentices during the course of the next five years with successful graduates achieving a modern apprenticeship in driving.

The scheme is open to people aged 18 to 24 years who are looking for a challenging career path and who already have an ordinary driving licence, possibly also with some professional driving experience. The scheme is also open to those simply looking for a change in career direction.
