Would you like to learn a new skill for 2019?

Then join our forklift novice course w/c 11th February 2019


If you’re thinking of learning a new skill, why not become a forklift driver which will enable you to work in a variety of companies.


Forklift drivers can work at any site that has goods going in and out. This could be a warehouse, a storage facility, a factory, a construction site, an airport or docks.


Your day-to-day tasks may include:

  • checking equipment daily and using it safely
  • loading and unloading goods from lorries, ships or aircraft
  • using radio frequency equipment to keep in touch with other staff
  • manually handling goods when necessary
  • stacking goods and moving them around in storage bays
  • picking and packing orders
  • completing paperwork for delivery notes and stock control
  • moving loads in and out of industrial racking


With the increase in warehousing, there is a constant demand for forklift drivers.  You can learn to drive a forklift truck in just a week and our next course is running on w/c 11th February at our training centre at Wroxton, near Banbury.
