At Key Performance Training, our aim is to provide delegates with a pathway to employment and help them find a job, a better job or a career.
In Swindon and the surrounding areas there are many job opportunities and a demand for Forklift Truck operators meaning that employment is easy to find after completing training. We see ourselves as the stepping stone between a delegate and their future in employment.
Below are the 4 steps towards the pathway of employment.
Step 1- Free Taster Session: Our free taster sessions or ‘Forklift Fridays’ are an opportunity for potential delegates to come along to the warehouse and find out more about the courses we offer. The session is up to two hours and includes demonstrations, information sheets, having a go on one or both trucks and also being given a chance to ask questions to our highly experienced trainers.
We want to be sure that all delegates are committed to a course before booking so we will always give feedback to either the delegate, the company or job coaches as to whether they are likely to succeed.
Step 2- Training: The duration of training can be anywhere from 1-5 days depending on the type of course, your level of experience and the delegates:trainer ratio. In all FLT courses there are elements of both theoretical and practical training that need to be completed before test day. At the end of the training you will be given both a theory and practical test that will be completed in a non- pressurised environment. Don?t worry though, as our trainers will make sure you are 100% ready before putting you in for the test and have the skills to put you at ease beforehand.
Step 3- You have your license: Successful learners will be presented with an RTITB approved certificate and photo ID card and will also be registered onto the RTITB National Operators Register Scheme database of approved forklift truck operators (NORS) for 3 years. We will then put you in contact with local employment agencies that can help you find work and also keep you updated on any new job vacancies that come up in the local area.
Step 4: Finding work- There you have it, you have now unlocked your pathway into employment! Often delegates find work 1-2 weeks after completing a course with us and although it is not certain you will find work straight away we always make sure you are the first people to know about any new job vacancies.
