Employer Forum

4 Mar 2010

Following the success in consulting with employer groups in the build up to implementing our Driver CPC offer, it was a logical extension to continue using this expertise to review the overall training needs and the offer to the sector.

The group, representing some 10,000 plus employees in logistics, initially gathered on the 22nd January and after some initial discussions on legislative required training, quickly moved on to development training.

The group identified a need to produce a clear training pathway for staff wishing to develop into the roles of: Warehouse Operative, Driver, Traffic Clerk, Traffic Supervisor and Warehouse Supervisor.

The next stage, commencing at the 30th March meeting will be to identify the key skills required at each stage and build training plans to ensure staff can be fully supported as they work to develop toward these roles.

For further information on the work of this group and how to get involved contact us either by phone or email: enquiries@wttl.co.uk

January Weather is Snow Joke

15 Feb 2010

As with many companies, the snow and cold weather in January has caused disruption at Wttl. However, we are now back out on the road training thanks to our patient, dedicated instructors!

The manoeuvring area caused specific problems, but armed with a shovel and a few bags of rock salt we were able to prevail. All training cancelled due to the weather has now been rebooked at no extra charge to the candidate.

Road Closed to LGV

14 Feb 2010

Local haulier Colin J Bale & Sons Ltd, based in Collingbourne Ducis have asked if we can make our readers aware of the objectives of the Marlborough and Tidworth Community Area Working Group.

This group have carried out studies on the volume of traffic using the A338/A346 between the M4 junction 15 and Salisbury. Currently some 7000 vehicles per day travel between the A303 and Marlbough, north of Marlborough this figure rises to 15,000. Of this traffic some 10% is LGV traffic.

Based on these and other findings the group have drawn the conclusion that the road is unsuitable for the current level of LGV traffic, and that LGV’s have a serious impact on the quality of life of those living along the corridor.
The objective of the group is now to examine ways in which the amount of through LGV traffic can be reduced. The full report may be viewed online at the Collingbourne Ducis website www.collingbourne-ducis.com/A338-346WG

If you have local issues you feel should be shared with other employers feel free to contact us and we will include them in this publication.
