Wttl achieve the Training Quality Standard

5 Oct 2010

After 12 months of preparation, consultancy, procedure reviews, bid writing and submission, Wttl received a validation visit from Investors in Excellence on the 27th August.

This day of staff interviews and procedure audits passed successfully and our application moved to the final stage, the employer survey. 198 of our trading clients were contacted by the awarding body for feedback, and as a result of your input Wttl were awarded the standard, with one of the highest employer scores received. But don't think that having joined an exclusive group of providers with TQS, we'll be resting on our laurels. We know there are 4 employers out there who didn't feel our service was good enough to recommend, so we still have work to do to improve!

Operation Tramline

2 Sep 2010

For those of you who thought that sitting up in a truck cab kept you away from the view of passing police cars, think again.
Operation Tramline ran in the Avon areas of the M5 & M4 during May, with local traffic police using an unmarked Volvo FH to drive alongside LGV’s.
As a result, over 20 drivers had their licence suspended for up to 3 weeks by Traffic Commissioner Sarah Bell who made her feelings clear, “drivers who use mobile devices are placing other road users at real risk”.
