Online Driver CPC training introduced at the start of the pandemic is proving popular with drivers at East Riding of Yorkshire Council.
TTC Group was awarded the contract to deliver the council’s managed Driver CPC programme in March 2020 – the time at which the Covid-19 pandemic struck and the UK entered the first lockdown. As a result, the group rapidly accelerated its ability to deliver all training online and since then, the council has been using the virtual classroom offer to provide its drivers with the latest educational resources.
Already, drivers have embraced the new online Driver CPC training from TTC Group to such an extent that 98% of over 100 drivers trained to date would recommend it to others while 86% rate the course nine or above out of 10.
The online delivery will ultimately cater for over 500 drivers of vehicles for the local authority.
Philip Burgess, fleet services manager at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “Moving towards delivering the CPC training online and working with TTC Group has been an easy transition. We have been really pleased with the training delivered and so too have our drivers.”
He continued: “We have a wide range of drivers and different vehicle types and we believe that all training needs to be relevant to the driver and truly engaging.
“We have seen a change in our drivers and a keen interest in the online provision which fits perfectly with our long-term ambition to make training count and align with our ‘Everyone Matters’ vision.”
Andy Wheeler, head of technical delivery at TTC Group, added: “At the time of the contract award we were converting all our Driver CPC courses to be compatible with online delivery which involved making the training as engaging as possible, while not deviating from the course summary.”
TTC also already had experience in delivering training online, following the rollout of delivering National Speed Awareness courses via Zoom to drivers through its UK police contracts.
