Cemex drivers graduate from apprenticeship scheme

Cemex apprenticeship.

Nine drivers have graduated from the Cemex Logistics Apprenticeship scheme and have become the latest aggregate tipper and cement tanker drivers at locations across the country. 

The drivers were the second cohort to take part in the year-long apprenticeship scheme which helps to address a recognised UK skills gap of an aging driver population by recruiting individuals aged 18-23.

Carl Milton, northern regional logistics manager and co-ordinator of the scheme, said: “We are delighted to welcome these new young drivers, three driving cement tankers and six driving aggregate tippers, to our team of over 300 drivers.  

“They have worked hard to achieve a high standard of professional driving and will be doing a vital role in supplying cement and aggregates for use in the construction industry.”

The programme is run in association with our apprentice training provider, Systems Training, and offers a professional framework to a nationally recognised Apprenticeship Level 2 (QCF) qualification in Driving Goods Vehicles and an LGV category C or C+E licence and the role of LGV Driver within Cemex.
