Congratulations to the first seven graduates from our Tesco driver training pilot project who started their new roles on Monday. This innovative partnership between the Faculty for Enterprise, Tesco, DWP and the London Boroughs of Havering and Barking and Dagenham gives local residents the opportunity to gain a Class 1 + E driving licence and a job at Tesco, subject to successfully completing a rigorous selection process.
Most of the group had no more than a car licence at the beginning of the year and all are now delivering produce to stores around London and Essex in articulated lorries. A second group will be taking final assessments in August. Subject to funding, it is hoped that more local people will be able to access this fantastic opportunity.
