Our AMAZING REMOTE LEARNING for Driver CPC Courses.

Friday 3rd April 2020
Just Training

With the COVID19 interrupting our business, and the ability of drivers gaining their Driver Qualification Card if it has expired, or if it is their first card Just Training leapt into action and quickly adapted our courses and set up a Visual Classroom learning environment so our drivers could continue with their planned training. Using Zoom we launched our first Driver CPC Remote Learning on Tuesday this week and have had the most amazing results. As with everything we do, we do it well, and our remote learning has gone down a storm. Using all the functions available in Zoom, we have continued to deliver our courses in the same meticulous way as our classroom sessions are held, with group activities, quizzes, and demonstrations that drivers can watch and then join in with. Yesterday saw all our drivers having to carry out some physical exercise with leg stretchers, hand massages and back care exercises while undertaking Remote Manual Handling Training and proved to be a popular hit. Our driver delegates have all been extremely helpful, respectful of…

A Thank You to the Team

Tuesday 29th October 2019
Andrea Speak

2019 was a bumper year for our Driver Periodic CPC Programme, with our Driver Delegates enjoying being entertained by our energetic CPC Modules, which saw them learning to cook, performing first aid, tasting non-alcoholic beer, practising self-defence techniques, and even cycling around the streets on our FORS programmes. And that meant a lot of man hours from my team of great enthusiastic and committed trainers and our hard working admin team. Im not sure how many dishwasher loads we did, how many tea bags and jars of coffee we got through and how many ham and cheese rolls they munched through but it was a lot! And then it was all over, and it was time to reflect. Everyone was truly exhausted from doing their very best every day so it felt right to treat them to something more than just a few extra quid in the pay packet.So what…

Andrea Speak

Every year, Just Training makes a Christmas donation to a UK based charity, instead of sending out Christmas cards and buying customer presents. We are very particular about the charities we support as well, so we make sure there are no CEOs on massive salaries, no staff driving around in Tesla cars, and no glossy marketing or cold calling activities. We want our donations to do what they are meant to do, and help those in need. Based on this premise, this year we have chosen Canine Partners to send our donation to. Canine Partners provide assistance dogs to people with physical disabilities, so that they can enjoy greater independence and an increased quality of life. Over the past 28 years, Canine Partners have provided and trained more than 750 dogs to help disabled people. There are more than 1.2 million people in the UK that use a wheelchair, and a significant number would benefit from having a canine partner. Canine Partners ensure that the right dog is matched to the applicants needs and lifestyle, and they are trained is tasks such as emptying the washing machine, picking up dropped items, pressing buttons, extracting payment cards from…
