Arrow XL has received accreditation to deliver Driver CPC modules in-house.

Arrow XL plans to deliver Driver CPC courses to more than 350 staff, as well as to its suppliers, during 2018.

The Arrow XL Development Academy has been approved to deliver five separate seven-hour modules, which includes a mixture of classroom-based and practical learning.

The modules cover core driving skills, with topics such as safety and driving efficiency, as well as training tailored towards its Platinum solution (the company's service for high value or complicated items and installations).

A one-day Driver CPC refresh course has also been sanctioned.

The Development Academy opened at Arrow XL’s Wigan headquarters earlier this year. It contains a purpose-built apartment - including a kitchen and bedroom, enabling drivers to hone their skills in a real-life environment.

Zoe Sinclair, head of resourcing and training, ArrowXL, said: “We are extremely proud to have received this important accreditation that will allow us to best train our colleagues and suppliers in the ArrowXL way. By bringing the training in-house, we can tailor the different modules in order to maximise their impact upon our business.

"In addition, our dedication to colleague development will help us to attract and retain staff, which is vital in an industry that is suffering from a skills shortage.”
