HGV Driver Apprenticeship Funding Increase

HE RHA has welcomed a government announcement that the funding band for the HGV C+E apprenticeship has risen from £7,000 to £8,000.

Sally Gilson, RHA policy lead, skills and drivers, said: “This move is much needed given rising costs and inflation, and will help get more new drivers behind the wheel.”

The RHA however is disappointed with an increase in funding for heavy vehicle technicians which it said is inadequate to tackle shortages.

Ministers announced an increase in the funding band from £15,000 to £20,000, which the association said is a real terms reduction and falls short of the £23,000 needed to make running the courses viable.
