FutureDRV - Preparing Professional DriversBOOK NOW

“Preparing professional drivers for their role and tasks within the fourth industrial revolution: The Future of Professional Driving”

Where:  CILT(UK), Earlstrees Court, Earlstrees Road, Corby, NN17 4AX - Directions

There are major changes within and related to the professional driving profession ahead of us. Those need to be prepared and supported by vocational education and training in order to reach their full potential but also to avoid a further increase of already todays’ deficit of skilled workers in this field that belonged continuously to the Top Ten jobs employers are having difficulty filling with competent employees over the past decade.

It is, therefore, of major importance to think ahead of time and to develop a vision of this profession in order to get ready for the changes that are ahead of us. The consortium of the European project “FutureDRV” representing specialist organisations from Germany, Austria, France, Sweden, Hungary and the UK addresses this challenge in the upcoming three years of project work.

The FutureDRV consortium invites experts and stakeholders on professional driving and professional driver qualification for a first expert round table in order to give the FutureDRV project an initial impetus and direction for the upcoming project work by exchanging on:

  • trends and innovations within transport and their impact on professional drivers’ qualification
  • the future role and function of professional drivers within transport
  • opportunities and challenges of future training for professional drivers 

The project is funded through the ERASMUS+ programme of the European Commission.
