New driving apprenticeship will have ‘major benefits’ for region says Freight Association CEO

The CEO of the Freight Transport Association of Ireland believes a new apprenticeship programme at ATU Sligo will have major benefits for upcoming employees and the wider area.

Minister Simon Harris was in Sligo Town today to launch the new Transport Operations and Commercial Driving apprenticeship.

It’s the first on the national framework of qualifications linked with the profession of Heavy Goods Vehicle Driving.

Speaking to OceanFM’s Catherine Gaffney from the launch this evening, CEO Aidan Flynn says one of their main objectives is to encourage more women to take on the apprenticeship and has been outlining what it entails.
