Callum was referred to us via Reed in Partnership who had a long-term goal of working as a forklift truck operator but there were certain obstacles standing in his way.
Without a driving licence he was unable to travel to previous courses and a lack of access to IT equipment meant he couldn’t complete the required eLearning element of the course.
We were able to sign him up for a fully funded counterbalance forklift truck course, which included transport to the test centre and back. But before he could go any further calamity struck, as Callum broke his arm in an accident and he was worried he would miss his opportunity to train.
We reassured Callum we’d still be able to support him and we booked him back in for a date once he was back to full health. He used the computers here at ANTA to complete the online theory side of the test before spending four days doing his practical assessments at Dulsons Training.
Callum successfully passed both his theory and practical tests and with this on his CV he is well on his way to securing work as a Forklift truck operator.
Callum's course was funded by the European Social Fund and the National Lottery Community Fund.
