Nadhim Zahawi – 2021 Comments on Training HGV Drivers

The comments made by Nadhim Zahawi, the Secretary of State for Education, on 10 December 2021.

HGV drivers are vital to keeping this country moving. It’s brilliant to see the first people with their hands on the steering wheel as they head towards new well-paid careers in the industry.

To help even more people get the training they need to be road ready, we’re expanding our HGV Skills Bootcamps to support more than 11,000 people to gain the skills they need to progress in the industry, and to help those with previous experience refresh their skills so they can get back on the road.
